In this work we present a mechanism designed for the selection of a suitable set of social norms that would regulate a simulated virtual society. The approach taken for this selection problem is a combination of Genetic algorithms and Simulation. A resource-gathering society has been built using Repast, and on top of it, the genetic algorithm that finds the social norms.
