Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Colony of Western Kodiaks is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Gentle Ben with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.532 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, with Defense, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. 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 283 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 80,311 Bottle Caps, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 383,772 per year while the poor average 9,855, a ratio of 38.9 to 1.

Banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, a byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, and strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices. 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 51,325th in the world and 136th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Cultured, scoring 68 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
