In a Roy economy the wealthy can be Y at first like a mafia or dictatorship, they can be jailed if the O criminal police are strong and find Oy agents of the Y businessmen to snitch on them.
This is a rebalancing of the Roy food chain as they attract more O attention.
Y people being apex predators usually ignore the rules of those under them, they use Oy agents to do the criminal work and T gets the lion's share. This is like y lions taking the carcass off Oy hyenas, the hyenas in effect act as agents for the lions and in return would get some leniency in being on the lion's territory. To break this system the O police use Oy snitches, O is like the center of the food chain where between them and the Oy predators the power of the Y apex predators is reduced.
