Is there a way to specify a superclass at runtime?

I have an application that needs to run different depending on whether
the input data is being simulated, or provided from instrumentation.
I am trying to abstract this machinery in a single class called
Controller which I want to inherit from either SimController or
RealController based on whether a module level flag SIMULATION is set
to True or False.
so I have something like this:
SIMULATION = False
"do sim stuff here"
" do real stuff here"
so if SIMULATION == False I want to be able to instance a Controller
object that inherits from RealController and vice-versa.
I thought this might be possible with metaclasses, but I didnt find
anything useful in the docs or on google.
Thanks for any help!
