The Happy Bears of Bearistotle and Hebert is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The King and Pope with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 20.069 billion Cute and Cuddly Bears enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small, liberal, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Environment, although Social Policy, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Industry aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Sofa. The average income tax rate is 13.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Cute and Cuddly economy, worth 137 trillion preapprovedcreditcards a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 6,832 preapprovedcreditcards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, the government has taken a 'sort it out yourselves' approach to fighting malaria, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bearistotle and Hebert's national animal is the Little Old Lady, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chocolism.

Bearistotle and Hebert is ranked 12th in The House at Pooh Corner and 142,305th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring -175 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
