According to wikipedia, you earned the equivalent of a year's worth of gdp of an average republic of congo citizen.

Are you sure it's a year and not 1/10 year? The per capita GDP (PPP) of the DRC is US$770 or so, and my income for that day was AU$117 * (US$1.00/AU$1.30) = US90.

I used the nominal gdp and assumed that 1 usd = 1 aus.

Admittedly the numbers were intentionally inflated so as to sound more impressive, that 1 day of your working at the restaurant being equivalent to that of 365 congolis toiling in the fields.
