Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Happy Bears of Bearistotle and Hebert is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The King and Pope with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 18.439 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 Law & Order 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 8.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Cute and Cuddly economy, worth 123 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 frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 6,706 preapprovedcreditcards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, planespotters are emigrating in droves, Bearistotle and Hebert has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and invading armies are given hard glares for their cheek. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 4th in The House at Pooh Corner and 6,015th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
