Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with a fair hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 10.683 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, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mark Barry Michael. The average income tax rate is 19.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient in Bear Connors Paradisoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,359 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, 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 amazing 220,906 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Almost all of Bear Connors Paradiso's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, prison visits increase substantially during election years, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, and there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees. 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 17th in the South Pacific and 1,076th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 994 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
