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 barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.229 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, 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 3.9%.

The thriving Kodiakese economy, worth 358 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 84,664 Bottle Caps, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 405,538 per year while the poor average 10,343, a ratio of 39.2 to 1.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, rundown towns are frequently sold to billionaires for their pet projects, whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Kodiakese Embarrassments, and royalist is the most offensive slur in the Kodiakese language. Crime is pervasive, 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 113,970th in the world and 129th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Inclusive, scoring 99.3 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
