Capitalist Paradise

Population39.264 billion

LeaderAyn Rand's ghost


The Grand Bazaar of Capitalist Paradise is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ayn Rand's ghost with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 39.264 billion Capitalist Paradiseans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, outspoken individuals prioritizes Education, with Defense and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse Capitalist Paradisean economy, worth a remarkable 8,324 trillion simoleons a year, is driven almost 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 amazing 212,001 simoleons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on. 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 164,828th in the world and 5,000th in the Rejected Realms for Most Armed, with 0.25 Weapons Per Person.
