Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, ritual sacrifices, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 12.516 billion Bears hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. 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 2,461 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 196,703 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The people of Bear Connors Paradiso are renowned for their nihilistic attitudes, the police force is on a recruitment drive, schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. 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 107th in the world and 3rd in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 755.6 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
