If Wikipedia is worth 7 billions at the moment, that would mean, every 
article is worth (we hit 10 million articles some time ago) some 700 
dollars. Oh my god! If I idiot wouldn't have released my articles under 
fucking GFDL and if I instead had sold them on the free market, I could 
be a millionaire! I should stop contributing to Wikipedia at once ;-)

And translate it into the country thing: That means I could reign over 
my own country with more inhabitants than the Vatican! King Marcus I. of 
Buckonia! Nice dreams ;-)
