[RPG] Is There a Role-Playing Game with a Business Theme?


Does anyone know if there is a role-playing game centered around a business theme. That is, where you own and grow a particular type of business (manufacturing, farming, transportation, etc), and it would be complete with a miniature stock market, etc.

It seems like there would be something in the casual board game genre, but I think the complex medium of a role-playing game would take it to the next level.

Traveller has owner operated starships trying to make a living on the spaceways.

GURPS Traveller: Far Trader presents a detailed economic subsystem for the GURPS Traveller line. It is generic enough to be useful with other systems.

Adventurer, Conqueror, King is a D&D retro-clone that include traveller system sub systems for merchants for fantasy campaigns.

Harnmanor details the economics of a medieval manor in a straight forward way and integrates roleplaying by having guidlines and tables for the lord interacting with his tenants.

The Pilot Almanac for Harn details merchant trading using sailing ships. Similar in spirit to Traveller.
