There is a company that produces a whole slew of online games at 
http://www.skotos.net/. I loved their strategy game, Hegemony. Was fun 
(don't play it much since all my gaming time is trapped in Warcraft).

I don't know what language they use to write these games. Have a look 
(and no I don't work for them).

I can't see using rails for this project.
