Capitalist Paradise

Population35.768 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 frequent executions, hatred of cheese, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 35.768 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, outspoken individuals prioritizes Education, with Defense and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse Capitalist Paradisean economy, worth a remarkable 7,810 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 218,364 simoleons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 774,306 per year while the poor average 44,421, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em", the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. 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 32,753rd in the world and 844th in the Rejected Realms for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 95.37 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
