The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.185 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals concentrates mainly on Education, although Commerce and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mark Barry Michael. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Bear Connors Paradiso's national animal is the swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is agnostic, and its currency is the euro.

Bear Connors Paradiso is ranked 4,555th in the South Pacific and 121,839th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -14 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
