Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 9.998 billion Connors enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mark Barry Michael. The average income tax rate is 8.1%.

The frighteningly efficient in Bear Connors Paradisoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,049 trillion euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 205,032 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Parents are held criminally responsible for their children's crimes, otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS, the nation leads the South Pacific in per capita stalking, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bear Connors Paradiso's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is agnostic.

Bear Connors Paradiso is ranked 4,706th in the South Pacific and 119,166th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -788 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
