The Happy Holiday Hosts of Bearistotle and Hebert is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The King and Pope with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 17.837 billion Cute and Cuddly Bears are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal individuals is mainly concerned with the Environment, although Social Equality and Healthcare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Sofa. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Bearistotle and Hebert's national animal is the Little Old Lady, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Chocolism, and its currency is the preapprovedcreditcard.

Bearistotle and Hebert is ranked 3rd in The House at Pooh Corner and 15,087th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 157 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
