The way Nuclear Monopoly works is that it will prevent any one player from making an enemy out of another by becoming a "have" in the midst of "have-nots." One way to avoid being nuked in Nuclear Monopoly is to make sure you're never the #1 richest player. If you stay #2 or #3, you can wait and watch as #1 grows more and more powerful, until finally someone nukes him or her out of the game.
Nuclear Monopoly creates a balance between players, because when all the standouts get nuked, everybody will try not to stand out. It's kind of like a reality show, like "Biggest Loser," where you can vote off the contestant you think will be the greatest threat to your victory. When a shoo-in arises, a contestant who is performing at a much higher level than everyone else, he or she will be quickly voted off, even by his or her own teammates. So the trick is not to do too well, and pretend that you're worse off than you really are.
