The Cranky Old Grizzly of BearNation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bobby ButterPaws with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.863 billion Bears live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Bear City. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. BearNation's national animal is the claw, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the bearlodge.

BearNation is ranked 4th in Gay and 293rd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 533 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
