I created this website as a parody of the famous Million Dollar Homepage. The Zimbabwe dollar just crashed again last week and, on the black market, you can now get Z$20,000,000 for USD$1 (the official exchange rate is USD$1 = Z$33,000).

Zimbabwean people absolutely is not. If anything, I hope that this raises
awareness and helps to show how ridiculous and irresponsible the government
of Zimbabwe is acting.
