At least some capitalism occurs in most countries (likewise, very few nations have absolutely no socialism). For the purpose of this list, we will apply the following qualifications:
1. The country has widespread capitalist economic activity
2. The government promotes and condones capitalism
Here is the list of capitalist countries and regions...
North America, Central America, most of South America, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Iceland, South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, most of Europe, Russia, Georgia, Lebanon, Israel, India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Cambodia, Philippines, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand
The most capitalist part of the world is the Western Hemisphere. Some of the listed countries are more capitalist than others; for example, many European and South American countries have more state economic participation than the U.S. or Japan.
Keep in mind that it is not a simple task to define each country as capitalist or not; often there is no clear distinction possible. For example, China and Venezuela have a great number of both private and state-owned companies.
