TSO's release in North America was not as popular as Maxis had expected. Outside of North America, it has only been released in Japan and as far as I am aware, there are no plans to release it anywhere else.

And after downloading the free trial, you can subscribe the game no matter where you live. That way the game can still be played in Europe, though you won't have it on CD.

If you really want the box and all, you'll need to import a version from the US, which including shipping and possibly custom costs, can become very expensive.
