The Republic of United Kodiaks is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Yogi Bear with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 13.121 billion Kodiak Bears enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Law & Order and Defense are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kodiak. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Kodiakese economy, worth a remarkable 2,403 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, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 183,151 Bottle Caps, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 862,874 per year while the poor average 23,083, a ratio of 37.4 to 1.
Only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, sexuality-questioning teenagers are placed in locked rooms with dirty magazines and lewd posters, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. United Kodiaks's national animal is the Chinook Salmon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ursalism.
