We aim to realize a state that increases incomes and closes the wealth gap automatically with built-in mechanisms, just by repeating buy and sell by many people and firms in each region.
Additionally, if you float your demands to avoid concentration on the map, we can expect better distribution of income opportunities that resolves the inequality.

The Demandic Ocean is not a place to seek excessive profits.
