Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Southern Kodiaks is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.707 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Third Estate City. The average income tax rate is 76.2%.

The strong Kodiakese economy, worth 208 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,375 Bottle Caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The Museum of Soybeans is the cultural heart of the nation, the government is interviewing for thousands of 'Religious Censor' positions, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, and votes of no confidence regularly remove unwanted MPs. 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 112,803rd in the world and 240th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -2.05 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
