The Grand Bazaar of Capitalist Paradise is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 23.615 billion are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals is mainly concerned with Education, although Law & Order and Defence are secondary priorities. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Capitalist Paradise's national animal is the donkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the simoleon.

Capitalist Paradise is ranked 27th in the West Pacific and 1,941st in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 12 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
