In real life, countries have to use many utilities then just Electric & Nuclear Power, Telephones and Cable Services.
Why not try adding new utilities, such as water supply, which could be quite fun to introduce.
Any other ideas?

we have those already.

I know we have Electric & Nuclear Power, Telephones and Cable Services already but not other types.

We have water, roads, rail, internet, gas and more.
What else did you have in mind?

not to mention, i've always imagined "services," to be a generic thing, that'd include trash collection, and such.
blue and crafty are right, take a look, they aren't all under "utilities," i mean, couldn't construction count as sewer maintenance. Under gov you have water maintenance, maybe that'd be sewers, also. And if you look around, you'll find much of the other stuff that you say is missing.
but, slightly off the subject, i've always felt that their should be a crime and corruption index, and the ability to build police stations, national intelligence and jails/prisons. the the welfare index would effect the crime index, and visa versa. high crime would cause your migration and taxes to decline, and possibly lead to riots, (which we already have.) then spying, and sabatoge could be easier against countries with poor crime indexes. shrug. but i've been saying this for a long time. really, i don't know why a country building game, that includes boycotts, and war, does not include espionage, or crime!!
slightly off subject, sorry.

Ha yes Josias, that's been thrown out there a few times, I reckon its a great idea.
Hey, how about we could build crack or smack houses and surreptitiously smuggle drugs into enemy states to damage their society?
