Capitalist Paradise

Population39.073 billion

LeaderAyn Rand's ghost


The Grand Bazaar of Capitalist Paradise is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ayn Rand's ghost with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 39.073 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 8,260 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 211,420 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 238,527th in the world and 7,623rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -26.38 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
