Its fun enough to think about, and I have. The order of things I would do... 1) Call attorney. 2) Have attorney do any interfacing with state and press. 2) Hire CPA, and SEPARATE money manager/financial planer. 3) Get out of town. Don't tell anyone - (except close family) where you are going. 4) Low profile for 6-8 months (nice vacation). 5) Have money manager CPA help determine best options for the initial "generosity" amounts, and methods. (how much goes to mom, and the brothers/sisters etc.) 6) Resettle elsewhere. Move wherever you like, don't tell any new friends where the money comes from.
