Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Southern Kodiaks is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its public floggings, fear of technology, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.273 billion Southern Kodiaks are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Third Estate City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.2%.

The strong Kodiakese economy, worth 197 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 60,489 Bottle Caps, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals are thrown to the Chinook Salmon to repay their debt to society, the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, and corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Kodiaks's national animal is the Chinook Salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Southern Kodiaks is ranked 94,708th in the world and 214th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Pro-Market, scoring 45.75 on the Rand Index.
