Our main interest research is focused on reaching a decentralized form of social order through the usage of social norms in virtual communities. In this paper, we analyze the effects of different sets of social norms within a society. The simulation scenario used for the experiments is a metaphor of a resource-gatherer prehistoric society. Finally, we obtain a qualitative ranking of all the possible sets of social norms in our scenario performing agent-based simulation.
