Can the civilians of a nation take their government to court and sue them ?
or this wishful thinking and near impossible ?

The "civilians" as a group can't sue. Individuals, and some groups, can sue ... but only if the government has given permission. Surprisingly, many governments have given permission. Usually this is out of a sense of shame or decency, or because the government would rather give permission to sue, instead of facing a civil war.
In the US, people sue the government just about every day. Many of them win.

Yes, and this happens all the time.
One example is people suing the US EPA for failing to enforce pollution controls related to the Chesapeake Bay:
There are lots of others, often they are initiated by activists who feel that a government agency is not doing it's job. Other times there are lawsuits against the government by industry groups who feel that the government is overreaching with regulations.

Sue them for what? And if they one and the government was forced to pay where would the money come from? Makes no sense.
