Try this delicious Omega substance.

Although the upcoming ‘Cities of Tomorrow’ expansion for SimCity doesn’t include an offline mode (stop reading now, if that’s all you were looking for) it does include gigantic monolithic future cities and a gigantic monolithic future-conglomerate company named OmegaCo who make, well, Omega.
Omega seems to take over the city somewhat like a virus: initially you need to pour resources into creating Omega and funding OmegaCo’s growth into your city, but soon they’ll start buying up other businesses, all of which will start paying you to pump Omega through the city. Of course it turns out Omega actually is addictive, hugely toxic and possibly explosive and may just permanently destroy the world, but that’s apparently part of the fun.
You can learn more about Omega in the video below or read this here blog entry from Maxis.
(And yes, Maxis are considering adding an offline mode.)
