The Grand Bazaar of Capitalist Paradise
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Location: the Rejected Realms
Regional Influence: Apprentice
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 hatred of cheese, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 37.183 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, although Defense and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.
The powerhouse Capitalist Paradisean economy, worth a remarkable 8,072 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 217,110 simoleons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 757,808 per year while the poor average 45,246, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.
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.
