The Republic of United Kodiaks is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Yogi Bear with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.417 billion Kodiak Bears are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kodiak. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Tourism and Pizza Delivery.
Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, Amnesty Interregional has condemned United Kodiaks for ignoring crimes against humanity, and penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative'. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Kodiaks's national animal is the Chinook Salmon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Ursalism, and its currency is the Bottle Cap.
