The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.925 billion are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business 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.
The government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, corporations are either above the law or corrupting it, the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, and new urban roads are threatening city parks. 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.
