The wealthy elite belong to no one Nation. They belong to the globe and travel at will. They have many homes all over and want it that way.
They spend billions on booze, baubles and yes, elections. Legal tender USA too, these Citizens united.
Occasionally, golf club factions spat and they take it out in the populace like Olympus did poor mortal wretches below.
How they will fear Far East and forget the carnage Middle! they laugh, and jump another Monopoly square your H&R block.
