The Republic of United Kodiaks is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Yogi Bear with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.195 billion Kodiak Bears are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kodiak. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Kodiakese economy, worth a remarkable 1,400 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 170,928 Bottle Caps, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,155,064 per year while the poor average 9,354, a ratio of 123 to 1.
Rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people, the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. United Kodiaks's national animal is the Chinook Salmon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ursalism.
