The Grand Bazaar of Capitalist Paradise is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 25.289 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, 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 4,802 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 189,891 simoleons, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, and voting is voluntary. Crime is totally unknown. Capitalist Paradise's national animal is the donkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Capitalist Paradise is ranked 4th in the West Pacific and 532nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 470 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
