Capitalist Paradise

Population31.799 billion



The Grand Bazaar of Capitalist Paradise is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 31.799 billion Capitalist Paradiseans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals prioritizes Education, although Defense and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse Capitalist Paradisean economy, worth a remarkable 6,882 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 216,434 simoleons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 948,436 per year while the poor average 31,107, a ratio of 30.5 to 1.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. 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 167,774th in the world and 3,246th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -25.43 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
