The Incorporated States of Capitalist Dolphins is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.091 billion Dolphins live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dolphinian economy, worth 181 trillion sand dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 166,131 sand dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,038,712 per year while the poor average 11,295, a ratio of 92.0 to 1.

Major boxing matches are held in government buildings, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, and solid-gold toilets are Dolphinian prisons' least expensive furnishings. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Capitalist Dolphins's national animal is the porpoise, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Capitalist Dolphins is ranked 155,617th in the world and 477th in New Western Atlantic for Safest, scoring 3.56 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
