Capitalist Paradise

Population37.406 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 remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 37.406 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 receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse Capitalist Paradisean economy, worth a remarkable 8,062 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 215,552 simoleons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. 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 203,438th in the world and 5,729th in the Rejected Realms for Most Primitive, scoring -565.73 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
