Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Grand Bazaar of Capitalist Paradise is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, national health service, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 27.535 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 5,318 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 193,146 simoleons, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly. 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 2,930th in the Rejected Realms and 137,079th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.007 Stalins.
