The Furesians, people who live in extreme poverty have exceeded almost more than half of their population, because of the greed the Eggonians developed with locking the frazzles in factories so they would be able to produce eggs year long, which made the economy of Eggonia flourish. As a member of Eggonia 's Grand Council on Ethics, I will appoint Peter Singer, a promising utilitarian philosopher as a consultant to help us consider the financial restoration, and, make Furesia an economically thriving country again. My view on the issue between the Eggonians, who became greedy and found a scientific loop hole in the process of capturing the frazzles and storing then in factories so they can become prosperous off of them is wrong.

This is similarly compared to the Furesians, well some perhaps, they both live in extreme poverty surviving on less than $2 a day. " According to a USAID report, the death toll from the earthquake was between 46,000 and 85,000, while the official figure by the Haitian government estimated the death toll at 316,000."
