The Colony of Western Kodiaks is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gentle Ben with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.477 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, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense, Industry, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Larsen Bay. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.5%.

The thriving Kodiakese economy, worth 480 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 Retail. Average income is 87,657 Bottle Caps, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 420,881 per year while the poor average 10,660, a ratio of 39.5 to 1.

The government's stance on marriage is 'Let Western Kodiaks marry themselves', the government's only official statement on the burning down of Larsen Bay was that 'they shouldn't have been so careless', bike rage is all the rage, and a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 21,772nd in the world and 49th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 77 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
