Their latest effort to bring the tabletop experience to the PC is based on Avalon Hill's renowned "Diplomacy." Developed by Meyer-Glass Interactive in cooperation with Microprose, Diplomacy takes elements of strategy and military conquest games like "Axis and Allies" and "Risk," and combines them with strong components of diplomacy.

The term was popularized in the 1970s with the creation of the now defunct "Office of Public Diplomacy for Latin America and the Caribbean." The OPD, at the behest of top White House Officials, sought to demonize the Nicaraguan Sandinistas and provide cover for the secret CIA war against them.
Public diplomacy seeks to change attitudes about the U.S. and U.S. actions by "telling the story" of the U.S. better and by promoting "Brand USA." Many doubts its actual potential for success since U.S. foreign policy, which is most often cited as the reason for anti-U.S. sentiment, remains unchallenged and unchanged.

In particular, I think that disaster diplomacy between two or more countries facing a common threat is different from a situation in which one country is the receiver and the other one the donor.
