The People's Republic of Southern Kodiaks is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, avowedly heterosexual populace, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.302 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 77.4%.

The very strong Kodiakese economy, worth 525 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,925 Bottle Caps, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

Sushi is sold on the black market, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, raindances intended to summon storms instead attract tourists, and citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts. 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 144,502nd in the world and 298th in Capitalist Paradise for Smartest Citizens, with 18.88 Quips Per Hour.
