The People's Republic of Southern Kodiaks is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory vegetarianism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.397 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 Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Third Estate City. The average income tax rate is 77.5%.

The very strong Kodiakese economy, worth 363 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 67,269 Bottle Caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The adult unemployment rate nears 100% as all available jobs have been filled by young children, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, foreign heads of state have taken out restraining orders against Kodiakese ambassadors, and urbanites battle to the death for penthouse apartments. 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 31,093rd in the world and 56th in Capitalist Paradise for Lowest Crime Rates, with 73.88 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
