The Cranky Old Grizzly of BearNation is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Bobby ButterPaws with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.829 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.

BearNation's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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 9th in Gay and 2,909th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 38 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
