The Holy Republic of United Kodiaks is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Yogi Bear with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.365 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 1,428 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 170,796 Bottle Caps, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,154,171 per year while the poor average 9,347, a ratio of 123 to 1.
The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, spies caught in United Kodiaks are never heard from again, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Kodiak. 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.
