The Republic of United Kodiaks is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Yogi Bear with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 16.391 billion Kodiak Bears live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Law & Order, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kodiak Island. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kodiakese economy, worth a remarkable 3,027 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 184,713 Bottle Caps, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 790,447 per year while the poor average 27,671, a ratio of 28.6 to 1.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. United Kodiaks's national animal is the Chinook Salmon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ursalism.

United Kodiaks is ranked 2,271st in the world and 45th in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 790,447.76 Standard Monetary Units.
