The United Kingdom Price.

You can buy the united kingdom for 8.8 trillion dollars (well, in theory, you could), which means that, "The precise figure is 4.983 trillion pounds, or 84,760.47 pounds for every man, woman and child as of April 2001. The value of buildings, vehicles, machinery, bridges, roads, shares and bank accounts are included in the total (of 8.8 trillion, natch), which is based on 2002 data."

here.

i suspect that somewhere, wealthy industrialists have just realised the bargain they've gotten by funding campaigns and influencing administrations in their invasions of countries...

Yeah, but the kids would just play with it for a couple of days before going back to the computer games, and you'd end up having to tie the lot up in a bag and throwing it in the English Channel when no-one was looking.
