The Empire of Sargon. - the first one.
What is funny, some sources consider bronze as the main target of the existence of that empire. The mechanism was as such:
The Empire needed bronze. Bronze=tin+copper. There were no problems with copper. But tin was expensive. So, the empire wanted to get cheap tin.
The problem was, that every time it wanted the lands of some neighbor that had cheaper tin and got them, the tin price in these lands immediately rose (because in the whole Near East, there are no tin mines, they were all merely tin traders). And the situation repeated again and again. The farthest limits where Sargon and his son got, remain unknown. But they never reached the tin mines. So, the empire fell apart being senseless.
Guys didn't know the economy laws or logic. And that remains to be the custom of dictators :-)
