Exclamation Twinsun's economical system

I thought about something...

How do you think Twinsen can earn enough money to live whereas he has no job ?...

We could say that there are 3 categories of people on Twinsun : [list=1][*] People who work to earn money in private establishments (in shops like Luc or the museum keeper for example)[*] People who work in public institutions (like Ralph)[*] People who just don't work at all.[/list=1]
Our hero belongs to this third category. He just find his money in dustbins & other plants !
(BUT, another strange thing, this money can't just appear there, unless dustbins are just kashes-generators; and let me have a doubt.

Back to the first category. It's the only one that is *plausible* understandable (and consequently the less interesting for our topic !)

And about the second one : Who pays those people ? What's their motivation to go each 'morning' at work ? (i said 'morning' although there are no nights in Twinsun) In our earth, these workers are paid by the 'country'.

However, there isn't that notion of 'country' (That's why we find an other problem : How can a planet live in peace and so quietly without having a president ?)

Or maybe Twinsun is just a too idyllic world for a rational reasoning like mine...

ehm...

What do you mean ?

(...Hope I was understandable... )

I understood ya
I think they just don't need to earn money.
I think money isn't really useful for them. Remember that in a few civilisations, money doesn't exist.
I also think they have a "peace spirit" exepted for funfrock.
There are not a lot of inhabitants so it isn't the same thing that on earth...

Money being in plants and trash cans doesn't make sense.
It's a game, don't look for logic.

Right... That's recurring processes in videogames, never understood why, but certainly for not have to give a job for their hero, it would be boring for the player...

Twinsen is the saviour of his planet. I don't think anyone would let him get poor. He may get a certain amount of the museum's profit.

Twinsen gets money of the Twinsunian Parliament as gradidute of defending the planet, and I think its many, maybe on Principal Island, there is the parliament.
And on Proxima Island, there might be the economic center, since FunFrock is defeated, but FF is a Dictator and Dictatorship means corruption and people only get money by searching in trash bins.
