The Republic of United Kodiaks is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Yogi Bear with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 17.659 billion Kodiak Bears enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Industry, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kodiak Island. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kodiakese economy, worth a remarkable 3,253 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 184,240 Bottle Caps, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 733,673 per year while the poor average 31,165, a ratio of 23.5 to 1.

Foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Kodiakese Moonshine", the government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos, the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, and drawing men's naughty bits isn't considered to be art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. United Kodiaks's national animal is the Chinook Salmon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ursalism.

United Kodiaks is ranked 46,126th in the world and 114th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Politically Free, scoring 71.62 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
