As dictator of a poor Developing World country, you summon your most loyal and trusted economic, military, and political advisors to discuss the dire conditions of your country. A large underground movement has sabotaged some of the key public works like bridges. Terrorist acts are frequent. You have dealt with this problem as best as you can. Rich countries want to extend credit to you for more armaments, but youâ€™ve heard talk that your neighboring countries, with whom you have a guarded peace, want to talk to you about mutual strategic concerns. There are economic sectors that can be better developed but might need some monies that have been largely slotted for more weapons purchases from developed nations. Developed nations want you to purchase weapons, but you know that they are not top of the line defense weapons. You have pressure from the aristocrats and military to act on their behalf to make things better for them, but you know that perhaps a populist approach may reap more stability.
