I am struggling with building the 2-level model I want to analyse in Mplus
It looks like this:

j k
| |
| |
X -----------------------> Y
| |
| |
n m

So x, y, n and m are on the individual level, j and k are country-level. m, n, j and k all moderate the effect of x on y (NOT JUST X).
How do I correctly translate that to Mplus input?

All variables are continuous by the way

You create interaction variables in Define using the moderator variables; some declared as Between. For X you use the cluster mean. See also UG ex 9.1 and 9.2.
