Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Southern Kodiaks is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.416 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. The average income tax rate is 75.5%.

The strong Kodiakese economy, worth 262 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 59,470 Bottle Caps, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Southern Kodiaks have replaced bears in a popular idiom, the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, priests are being drafted by the church load, and a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away. 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 173,238th in the world and 295th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -64.31 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
