The Capitalist Alliance of The-CID is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by CID with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 27.673 billion CIDians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense and Welfare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint-CID. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient CIDian economy, worth an astonishing 10,173 trillion Golden Shares a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 367,624 Golden Shares, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,416,164 per year while the poor average 65,639, a ratio of 21.6 to 1.

Contestants on The-CID's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, eminent domain has been abolished, and tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The-CID's national animal is the Prancing Horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholic Church.

The-CID is ranked 265th in the world and 10th in Capitalist Paradise for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 738.47 on the Hayek Index.
