Drawing a globe, with countries and great circle routes

I'd like to draw a globe (as seen from space) with countries and oceans 
(in color if possible), maybe even some topography; be able to overlay 
great circle routes between specified points; and then view the result 
from different points in space either by rotating the globe in 3D 
fashion or redrawing the image.

Any Mathematica packages, freeware or commercial, that will do this?
