The Happy Herders of Bearistotle and Hebert is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The King and Pope with a fair hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 17.122 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 concentrates mainly on the Environment, although Social Equality and Healthcare are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gingerbread House. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.

People are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, new funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen, and the nation has an international reputation for compassion. 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 2nd in The House at Pooh Corner and 2,254th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 6 on the Hayek Index.
