I'm trying to find a lost science fiction story I read long ago. The plot was that prospective political leaders were hooked up to a miniature world built on this huge tabletop and filled with miniature people. The prospect had to establish himself as the successful new deity in this miniature world through god-like powers. The wrinkle was that the death of a miniature people would send a painful surge back to the test subject and too many little people deaths could be fatal.
Does anyone recognize this shortstory?
