Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Southern Kodiaks is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, fear of technology, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.095 billion Southern Kodiaks are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Kodiakese economy, worth 156 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,601 Bottle Caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Untold millions of Bottle Caps are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, a byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and computers are widely considered to be the "devil magic of heathens". 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 114,982nd in the world and 149th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Devout, with 12.64 Prayers Per Hour.
