Why don't we have medals or badges for most respectful class?
Like Businessman or Gangster (default)

Just make a exception on whatever the player feel like having, the medal for top country or participating on the competition for best pimp or best broker for example. So even if they don't get a medal for country/international top ranks, they would have some will to play til the end, competing with others in same class.
This can work just like Fight Club, but removing the players from ranking as respect and competing inside the pimp/broker/businessman/gangster-only rank.

And doesn't even need to be the most respected, could it be the Pimp with the most incoming $$$ from hookers or the businessman that produced most drugs.
This could even make the items more useful, since Hooker and Building items are not high end players usage.

Hope someone read this and at least think about it.
