The game needs more option for the single based player mode for the level requirements. I am stuck at level 4 for a single player mode with out CEO. It does needs to be revamped to make the player look forward to make more things to solve the game goals.

@Altered, it is actually illegal for a country to attack switzerland. If say France invaded them, than every country is obligated to declare war on France(Nato) immediately. If Russia invaded them than all countries are obligated to declare on Russia (Warsaw).

I really don't know if there is some agreement promising to defend Switzerland...if so it is likely a very old one.
Legality in an international sense is regarded by one side of experts as being very weak, to the point of being nothing much worth considering except in areas where a clear advantage in low-stakes politics are concerned (various conventions like the postal agreement) to being an incomplete work by another group of experts.
Either way, international law has very weak enforcement mechanisms. There is no real body which can enforce any sort of prohibition on invasion. The U.N can't even prevent genocide and the ICC can barely ever prosecute international war criminals.
Switzerland very rightly feared invasion by Germany in the early part of the war. No legal mechanism could have stopped that. These days, I highly doubt that Switzerland has any reason to fear, but that's really because of the shared norms and values in the region, rather than any sort of agreement.

"Due to its geographical location, the ethnic composition of its population, and its relatively minute territory, Switzerland has had to obtain neutral status in order to maintain its internal cohesion. The Swiss Alps serves to link Germany and France through the Italian peninsula, and throughout the country's history, its national territory has been coveted by surrounding powers. Declaring neutrality and being ready to enforce it was and continues to be the best means by which Switzerland can maintain national security.
The Swiss population is composed of French, German, Italian, and Romansh speakers. These are the four official languages of the country, and they represent the diversity that existed within its borders for much of its history. In fact, in the late 18th and early 19th century, the nation was reduced to a vassal state due to internal disorder. It was Napoleon Bonaparte who, in 1803, restored order.
With Napoleonâ€™s defeat, however, the Swiss were determined never to suffer an invasion again. In 1815, the Congress of Vienna, consisting of major European powers who had convened to discuss international relations in the post-Napoleonic era, deemed Switzerland to be a neutral country. This neutrality was reaffirmed in 1920 by numerous countries. Once it joined the League of Nations, during the 1920s and 1930s, it was willing to take on the duties of member nations, thereby making its neutral status void. In the 1930s, however, the country regained its neutral status once it was relieved of these duties."

Another reason is that switzerland has for many centuries armed its population to the teeth.Unless recent changes are in effect, one even had to carry a weapon of some sort to the polls, when voting (by tradition). One doesn't wonder much why Switzerland was able to maintain its neutrality in WW2, as the thought of trying to roust out thousands of pissed-off Swiss, heavily armed, in the mountains, even made der Fuhrer stop in his tracks.
