Capitalists mini.pngCapitalists are a POP type. They are members of the rich strata along with Aristocrats. Capitalists who have enough money will build factories and railroads and with certain types of economic policy (Lassez-Faire and Interventionism) this is the only way to construct factories. However, using the Planned Economy policy will prevent capitalists from building factories and railroads. Capitalists' source of income is from the profits of their factories and may re-invest these profits into other factories, railroads or the National Bank. The remainder of the income of their factories goes to Craftsmen and Clerks who work in the factories.

Capitalists provide a bonus to factory input efficiency in the state they are located in. Capitalists are less likely to support conservative or socialist policies and parties and more likely to support liberal parties. This increases the likelihood of passing political reforms in the early game by encouraging capitalists as most countries' upper houses are comprised of the upper class.
