The Colony of Western Kodiaks is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Gentle Ben with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.875 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, with Defense, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 328 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 84,697 Bottle Caps, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 405,697 per year while the poor average 10,347, a ratio of 39.2 to 1.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and rundown towns are frequently sold to billionaires for their pet projects. 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 148,197th in the world and 199th in Capitalist Paradise for Safest, scoring 6.9 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
