The Republic of United Kodiaks is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Yogi Bear with an even hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.741 billion Kodiak Bears are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Defence. 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.
Protests are legal but strictly supervised, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, and it is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs. 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.
