Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Cranky Old Grizzly of BearNation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bobby ButterPaws with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.921 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Bear City. The average income tax rate is 40.5%.

The frighteningly efficient BearNationian economy, worth a remarkable 7,975 trillion 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 333,423 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and rioting and unrest sweep the nation. 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 1st in Gay and 17th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 546 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
