Plug less than 1 percent of the U.S.'s federal debt
The U.S. federal debt is a very contentious topic. Currently at $16.07 trillion, it's thought to be one of—if not the largest amount of money in the world. And, even with that, nobody has it. That amount of money doesn't actually exist, only in the vague subconscious minds of bankers.
