in this game X-com is only funded by the big countries,
Like the US, UK, Japan, Russia, South Africa, Canada, Germany, and
other big countries, but all the small ones are on their own, because it they do not pay enough to support an X-com base near them. So, in multiplayer you play small countries, like Thailand, or Pakistan, or Mexico, and they all compete with each other, and have skirmishes with each other X-com on occasion when both sides arrive at a UFO, with X-com being AI controlled. And maybe you could attack X-com bases and try to frame other countries...
I know that parts of this have been discusses, but there are a few new things here that I thought might work...

That sounds like an intresting multiplayer mode! My mug goes out to you :beer:
Hmm, perhaps this could be worked into the taking/retaking countries mission that has been proposed. Hmm...
I'm only partially inactive. :P I can still be reached at cpl.facehugger@gmail.com, and via PM. Preferably the former.

For further reference there is a very old thread dating from October 2002 to December that disects the multiplayer gameplay. It is kinda complex to mix realtime geoscape with battlescape (everyone interested in following this topic should be aware of the limitations)...
