Damn that eBay!
I was seriously considering buying Belgium until they stopped the sale. The bidding was up to 10 million euros, but considering it was for an entire country it seemed like a deal to me (even with the national debt and the expenses of supporting the king and his court). I had plans for that place. For one thing, I would go there. I rode on a train through Belgium once, but after you buy a country it is probably a good idea to go take a look around. Then I was going to kick out the king and take my rightful place as Pineapple Princess. That would take care of that expense because I was willing to do the job for room and board and maybe a few new outfits (a princess needs to dress the part, right?). I'm not really sure what I was going to do about the 300 billion in national debt, but I wasn't too worried about it. Massive debt doesn't stop this country from spending money we don't have on stuff we don't need. So really, that problem was solved by pretending it wasn't a problem. But now that eBay has stopped the sale of Belgium my poorly thought out plan was all for nothing.
