The Republic of United Kodiaks is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Yogi Bear with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 16.944 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 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 are ignored. 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 3,125 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 184,464 Bottle Caps, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 744,910 per year while the poor average 30,489, a ratio of 24.4 to 1.

Kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, schoolboys trained in chivalry are encouraged to duel other boys for a maiden's hand, and condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals. 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 12,654th in the world and 74th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 99.53 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
