The Confederacy of Egoistic Markets is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 496 million Egoists enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Administration and Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Market Center. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Egoistic Marketsian economy, worth 59.8 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 120,599 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

The Hanging Gardens account for half of Market Center's water use, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, candidates celebrate "free speech" by spraying champagne all over anyone who shows up to a rally, and in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Egoists can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Egoistic Markets's national animal is the Raccoon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Egoistic Markets is ranked 207,987th in the world and 229th in Capitalist Paradise for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.67 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
