Economic Hitman: the game

 

Level One: The year is 1970. The place is Jakarta, Indonesia. You are one smooth consultant mofo, working for MAIN Intenational. You have 14 days to convince local advisors to sign a contract for an electrical infrastructure grid to be built by your contractors, or else the government will start sending in Jackyls (aka CIA who distribute arms to the locals & foster insurrection). If you haven't accomplished the mission in 30 days, the government sends in the military to uproot the current regime and you lose.

Other levels (each level involves extracting a resource from that country, sussing out weaknesses of leadership personalities, winning over the minds of officials and preventing covert CIA or military from ruining your deal):

Ecuador
Saudi Arabia
Nicaragua
The Phillipines
Libya
Panama
Romania
Iraq
Afghanistan
Syria

Boss levels:

Venezuela
Iran
Russia
China

That should be the new Carmen San Diego/Oregon Trail game for the youngsters. Learn while they're good and young.
