Despite their diversity, all these players share the same basic financial concerns for their stocks of anonymous private wealth—at last count, worth more than $5 trillion—against the threats posed by prosecutors, tax men, kidnappers, and each other.Fortunately for this Noah’s Ark of subterranean characters, a sophisticated network has grown up to deliver precisely these services.

This global pirate banking system now conceals the riches of the world’s wealthiest people and largest corporations as well as many of its worst villains. They are all citizens of a brave new virtual country—one that lacks a physical location, but offers them freedom from most taxes, laws, and moral restraints.
