If you are now an $n$-dimensional creature in an $m$-dimensional universe, what kind of entertainment / political system is available?
E.g., dancing is possible in this universe as this universe is of 3-spacial dimensional, but might be unavailable in other dimensional universes, i.e., there may be no gravitational force in other dimensional universes;
authoritarian regime is THE only available possible political system in a $2$-dimensional universe, e.g., video games such as Starcraft, but democracy [and the US adaptation of democracy] is available [possible] in this universe as this universe is of $3$-spacial dimensional.
