The Cranky Old Grizzly of BearNation is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Bobby ButterPaws with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.147 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, although Environment and Industry are also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Bear City. The average income tax rate is 35.6%.

The frighteningly efficient BearNationian economy, worth a remarkable 7,979 trillion Irish gold coins a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 330,475 Irish gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, Poodle is one of the most popular forenames in BearNation, the government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support, and a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BearNation is ranked 9th in Gay and 2,066th in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 44 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
