Similar stories have been written about online gaming and real world money, but this one about EverQuest had some interesting statistics, like:

“Players earn an average wage of $3.42 for every hour they play the game and collectively produce annual gross “exports” of more than $5 million.”

“Its per-capita gross national product would be $2,266–comparable to the 77th richest country on Earth and ranking it between Russia and Bulgaria.”
