The Republic of United Kodiaks is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Yogi Bear with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.877 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 minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, 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 1,274 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 161,796 Bottle Caps, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 656,010 per year while the poor average 26,563, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.
Morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. United Kodiaks's national animal is the Chinook Salmon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ursalism.
