The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 11.973 billion Bears enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mark Barry Michael. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient a Bear economy, worth a remarkable 2,328 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 and Book Publishing. 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 impressive 194,451 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, robosexual marriages are increasingly common, schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, and immigrant herding has become a national pastime. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 149,318th in the world and 5,992nd in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -38.44 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
