Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Colony of Western Kodiaks is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gentle Ben with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.32 billion Western Kodiaks 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, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Defense, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Larsen Bay. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The thriving Kodiakese economy, worth 265 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 80,014 Bottle Caps, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 382,353 per year while the poor average 9,819, a ratio of 38.9 to 1.

The army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, the government is pursuing a new programme aimed at promoting cultural sophistication, and banning party poppers has been a real party pooper. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Western Kodiaks's national animal is the Chinook Salmon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Western Kodiaks is ranked 7,808th in the world and 41st in Capitalist Paradise for Most Pro-Market, scoring 88.33 on the Rand Index.
