One of the major dividers between rich countries and poor countries is technology level. Most notable in the news these days is that only a select few can produce nuclear weapons. I think having a technology Index would be good. Certain corportations would require a high enough index. Maximum effectivity levels and quality would also be limited by the index.

The technology index could be improved by a higher education index and possibly direct investments into research. trade within a common market to a country with a higher tech index would also increase your own as over time the trading relationship will lead to technology transfers.

An enterprise which has a corporation in one country could also build another of the same type in any other country, since they already have access to the technology. The host country would also receive a technology index boost as some of the technology would be transferred over time.

This would add realism, another area to draw investment for wealthier countries, provide a tangible benefit (not just a higher score) when developing common markets, and provide added encouragement to draw in foriegn corporations.
