The Grand Bazaar of Capitalist Paradise is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 25.74 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, pro-business, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Capitalist Paradisean economy, worth a remarkable 4,926 trillion simoleons a year, is driven entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 191,385 simoleons, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.
The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, voting is voluntary, and all tariffs have been abolished. Crime is totally unknown. Capitalist Paradise's national animal is the donkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
