The Republic of United Kodiaks is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Yogi Bear with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 20.753 billion Kodiak Bears enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, with Law & Order, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kodiak Island. The average income tax rate is 1.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kodiakese economy, worth a remarkable 3,624 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 174,664 Bottle Caps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, both criminals and civilians are DOA, and nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 9,544th in the world and 28th in Texas for Highest Average Incomes, with 174,664.78 Standard Monetary Units.
