Unless it's StalinMush(tm). Then, mandated leadership is encouraged and bannings for failure/cowardice (enforced by staff-appointed Commissar) will help keep the people strong.
I so want this. I'm picturing a game where xp is spent staying alive rather than becoming an uber character. All of the characters are party members, even if they don't know it--their parents signed them up for their sixth birthday or something, and yeah, everyone is on a list.
Weekly plots revolve around Stalin wanting a wedge of cheese from a certain deli or something, and people have to scramble to get it, who cares what happens. Maybe like a slapstick shadowrun vibe with a sprinkling of 1984 to it or something.
Would people be interested in something like this? I think it could be squeezed for a solid year of fun rp with many characters disappearing off of the wiki.
