In a followup post, Soltas outlined the gargantuan obstacles to the sort of modeling that underlies these sorts of simulators. I think he's all around done a great job overcoming them, however.
My first attempt was going along fine until Zimbabwe set in. I think I allowed the Funds rate to stay so low so long that my 'citizens' came to anticipate low rates forever. Thus my wild punches (2020 and onward) at inflation never landed. My next attempt, the results of which I will also post to CW, will hopefully be less Weimaresque.
I'd encourage readers to try the simulator out and see what you get.
