The People's Republic of Southern Kodiaks is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.392 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.4%.

The very strong Kodiakese economy, worth 472 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,967 Bottle Caps, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, alcoholics are lauded as national benefactors within the halls of the Ministry of Finance, diabetics find the contents of their medications hard to stomach, and women have a strange proclivity for dressing up as caped weasels. 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.

Southern Kodiaks is ranked 79,918th in the world and 153rd in Capitalist Paradise for Most Cultured, scoring 65 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
