What is the matter with just finding that one place on earth that you may want to settle down in first, and then proceeding to find that woman of your choice that may live in another country. For instance, I've heard most on here say that Guatemala does not have an abundance of beauties there. So what if I import a woman from Colombia or Argentina to Guatemala and just call it a day?
Sure, that's an idea, but if you're both foreigners in a country, then neither of you has any advantage with the immigration laws there. You probably both have to fill out annoying forms every year just to stay in the country. Whereas if one of you is a citizen of the country where you live and you're married, then the other one will most likely be able to get citizenship/a long-term residence permit much more easily.
Someone should start a thread about the countries where it's the easiest to get residence permits and/or infinitely extend your tourist visa. If you want to stay in any country long-term, you inevitably have to deal with this stuff.
Importing gf's (not wives) is generally going to be harder than importing a bride. If income or investment is required, the lady will need to supply her own.
I'd like to know how to do it into the U.S.
Outside the U.S., I think easiest will be Guatemala and Paraguay. Latin countries are easiest to work and do business in, but varies from place to place.
For man to go, then import a gf without marriage - this is the Holy Grail!!
Difficulty ranked from easiest to hardest, based on my internet research only:
small fees and costs plus Local resident to vouch for you (and your honey)
Paraguay - small fees and costs plus deposit $6k OR show you can support yourself;
when it's time to bring her, you can vouch for her.

Belize - $1k a year fee for each of you
Costa Rica - visa runs for each of you; have a baby locally and you're a permanent resident without marriage
Mexico - small fee plus show you can support yourself $1500/month - same for your honey
FM-3 visa for 5 years (Work requires another step)
Philippines - $4k onetime fee for each of you
Albania, Montenegro, Romania - not too hard
Azores/Madeira/Portugal - show you can support yourself; same for each of you
Argentina - Separate $900 per month income for each of you
Germany - Separate $1100 per month self-employment income for each of you
