Taking a break from our little game, ask why this change is being proposed. Think beyond the obvious. Hint, "You will own nothing, and be happy."

Finance ministers from the Group of Seven (G-7) advanced nations agreed on Saturday to back a minimum global corporate tax rate of at least 15%.​
Governments in major economies have for years faced the challenge of taxing large companies, such as tech giants Facebook and Google, that operate across many jurisdictions.​
A common practice among many multinational companies is to declare income — such as those from intangible sources like software and patents — in low-tax jurisdictions regardless of where the sales are made. That allows the companies to avoid paying higher taxes in their home countries.​
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development or OECD, an intergovernmental group, has been facilitating negotiations on global taxation over the last few years. It expected a global corporate minimum tax rate would make up the bulk of the $50 billion to $80 billion in additional taxes that companies will end up paying, reported Reuters.

There is a flaw in your proposed game. Puerto Rico is not a country but a posession of the United States. A few other jurisdictions in your graph are also posessions of other countries.

As posessions those jurisdictions have little say in their own governance.
