With Apple reporting $149 billion in revenue, it’s pretty interesting to see what kind of stuff they could buy. Sure, they could buy every private jet in the sky, plenty of exclusive property around the world and all of those ordinary things. But what about countries? Well, the answer is yes.

Yes, Apple has earned enough to be able to buy countries as they are. As a matter of fact, there are countries around the world that can be bought for as much as Facebook acquired Instagram for.
