The Grand Bazaar of Capitalist Paradise is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.736 billion Capitalist Paradiseans 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defence. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

All tariffs have been abolished, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. 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 3,962nd in the West Pacific and 113,827th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring -393 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
