Default World Domination Logistics

So hypothetically, since this forum does not endorse world domination, if one hit the lottery for fifty million dollars, how would one parlay that into world domination?

Could one, say, get a private island and a rogue nuke?

Understand, I'm not suggesting that I endorse world domination, but view this merely as an exercise in the logistics of world domination.

Thoughts?

Well, since the going price to buy a politician or a judge is MUCH less than a million $$$, you could have quite a shopping spree.

It would take a whole lot more than $50 million. Think of all the people that have access to more than $50 million, someone would have taken over already. Even $50 Billion probably isn't enough. Now if you just want to dominate a country, $50 million is plenty depending on your choice.

Yeah, but $50 mil is the start point. You're supposed to be an evil genius. Work with it.

How do you come up with the cool volcano lair?

I can't reveal my plans publicly, but I will say that Israeli commandos play a part and Saudi Arabia becomes a theme park. Just saying.

Cool volcano lairs, while cool are also cliche. I would buy Sealand. Use that as a base of operations. Probably get into arms trading or invest heavily in oil and then buy an old Russian sub or something and sink a bunch of oil tankers. I probably just turned my $50 million into a couple Billion as the price of oil just went to above $250 a barrel.

See, now you're thinking.

I started my plans with Sealand about a decade ago, but it is virtually indefensible against girl scouts in rubber rafts.

Today is a good day, as I've learned something new.

The Sealand concept is do-able.

If, as leader of your own micronation, you declared war on France, surely you'd have all the support you could ever dream of from the big boys, since even the French don't like France.

Now the thoughts cascade.

So, I got $50 million in a lump sum? Or I am getting payments over 25 years? Because that will determine how I go about this....

First thing you need to do is drop off the grid for about 6 months - no contact with anyone that knows you. Keeps the free loaders from jumping on board with your plans and gives you time to plan where.

The usual base of operations, an isolated island, would be a poor choice in my mind. Too easy to carpet bomb back into the stone age if you became a serious threat. Plus a naval blockade would seriously hamper your efforts of importing whatever wasn't natural to your Island.

I am thinking a high rise in a "traditional society" like structure. China would be great, Beijing perhaps, but the Government would be too much hassle. Japan perhaps??

Eastern Europe would give you good access to Cold War grade weapons and gear, but then you are in the EU and well, who the hell wants an evil lair there??

This is going to have to be a work in progress as I am working today and should be doing my $100K reporting.....
