The Republic of United Kodiaks is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Yogi Bear with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 21.596 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Law & Order, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kodiak Island. The average income tax rate is 1.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kodiakese economy, worth a remarkable 3,714 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 171,987 Bottle Caps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em", citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin, and large sections of United Kodiaks have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there. 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 224,827th in the world and 169th in Texas for Most Inclusive, scoring 9.88 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
