Nothing I've read is clear. As a miner, what's to prevent someone from setting the fee to 99999999BTC?

Just that no one would pay that. think of transaction as a free market, miners can set the price but only if people are willing to pay it. Look at the 210,000 block that is when the reward first halved so people wanted to be in that block so they set fees very high like 13 bitcoins so make sure.
