Take the survey and find out. 31 slaves work for me. It's sad but in the completely messed-up world we live in now, it's hardly surprising.

It says I have 13. That's including a car which, though I do sometimes use, more often than not do not, so that number may be a bit higher than it should.

Well, I guess that's one good thing about not having many luxuries.

I scored 32. Hardly surprising though I find it funny that the only way to access the information is to "own slaves".

I took the survey again because I forgot what the main areas were. As it turns out, the main culprits are: the CD player, the socks, the underwear, the pillow and the soap. How about yours?

I got 34... I guess it's time for me to give up underwear.

26. Mostly because I have a big TV that was given to me, and a blu-ray player.

Sarcastic is the one word that defines me.

31.
My make-up and wardrobe collection probably adds a lot to my total. I had 38 before I fine-tuned it cause I didn't get very specific on the electronics.

I thought this was some terrible joke at first.

37 slaves. Apparently my pillow greatly contributed to this number.

Actually, shadows, so did I.

I suspect the count also depends on location. By far the biggest circle I got was in China (although, with our 1.3B population, I won't be surprised if this is everyone else's, too). I'm vegetarian, the only 'medicine' I have are the bare necessities like the toothbrush, the comb and the bar of soap, I'm classified as 'technophobe' (even though I'm not really a technophobe), etc.

Only 25. I am only a teenager though, so maybe it'll be higher when I grow up. It was my soap, conditioner, DVD player, and Wii that affected that the most apparently. This is really sad but for some reason I just feel like, Wow I'm so powerful.

Not as powerful as Leopold II.
