There is no one to pay.
Well, you could set up an alternate root server which can serve any top- level domain you want... but then users who want to use those new domains need a plugin for their browsers or otherwise have to modify the DNS entries, so it's not for everyone. Some people have tried something like that, but as far as I can tell, it hasn't really caught on. (Though they didn't want conculture domains but something like .shop or .xxx or whatever.)
