Roughly like an airplane on which one passenger has 40% of the seats to himself. The other 99 passengers are also unequal, so that as you walk to the end of the plane the overcrowding worsens. Having most of the passengers painfully squashed and jammed into a few rows in the back, while one passenger has overflowing abundance, is a fair graphic for the shape of this society.
