Magrathea

Recommended Posts

Magrathea is considered the home of the industry of "Custom-made luxury planet building." It was a market aimed at the richest of the rich, during the days of the former Galactic Empire. The Magratheans would design and create entire planets for wealthy clients. They were so successful that Magrathea became the richest planet of all time. However, this resulted in the rest of the galaxy being plunged into abject poverty and the economy collapsing. The planet then faded from memory with most people believing it to be just a myth.

Thanks, a parable for our times?

Its surprisng how much tongue in cheek 'wisdom' Adams wrote (either wittingly or unwittingly) in his wonderful Hitchhikers trilogy.

with earth being one of the designed planets....

where people were miserable, and greedy, and spent all their time chasing small green pieces of paper, which was odd, because the small green pieces of paper were not unhappy.

The best bit was when they put all the lawyers, estate agents and telephone sanitisers on a giant spaceship, told them they were the elite that needed to be saved from a giant planet eating monster, and fired them out into space.
