Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Cranky Old Grizzly of BearNation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Bobby ButterPaws with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, public floggings, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.577 billion Bears hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment and Industry also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Bear City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.2%.

The frighteningly efficient BearNationian economy, worth a remarkable 7,919 trillion -es a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 335,881 -es, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, it's a common sight to see angry commuters with grenade launchers mounted on their vehicles, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. BearNation's national animal is the poodle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

BearNation is ranked 2nd in Gay and 388th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 1,492 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
