Tyre was. Check out the whole chapter of Ezekiel 27, see if you think it's a spiritual match.

Ezekiel 27
29 And all that handle the oar, the mariners, and all the pilots of the sea, shall come down from their ships, they shall stand upon the land;
30 And shall cause their voice to be heard against thee, and shall cry bitterly, and shall cast up dust upon their heads, they shall wallow themselves in the ashes:
32 And in their wailing they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and lament over thee, saying, What city is like Tyrus, like the destroyed in the midst of the sea?
33 When thy wares went forth out of the seas, thou filledst many people; thou didst enrich the kings of the earth with the multitude of thy riches and of thy merchandise.
35 All the inhabitants of the isles shall be astonished at thee, and their kings shall be sore afraid, they shall be troubled in their countenance.
36 The merchants among the people shall hiss at thee; thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt be any more.

Rev 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

Isaiah 23:8 Who hath taken this counsel against Tyre, the crowning city, whose merchants are princes, whose traffickers are the honourable of the earth?

Blackrock and Vanguard comes to mind.
They basically run the world, they own almost every company, corporation, trade and industry.
BlackRock is owned by shareholders, the biggest shareholders of BlackRock is Vanguard.
Vanguard is a private company, it does not disclose who owns it's shares. So it's a mystery, it sort of fits the phrase "mystery, babylon the great".
Since they basically own the world, it's fair to say they also "rule over the kings of the earth" (Rev 17:18)
