Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Southern Kodiaks is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.095 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 76.3%.

The strong Kodiakese economy, worth 236 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,863 Bottle Caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, women are ordered home to reproduce for the glory of the People's Republic, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, and half of the nation's import/export industry is run from a location known only as 'Dead Man's Cove'. 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 141,263rd in the world and 160th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Inclusive, scoring 36.41 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
