Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Playful Otters of BearNation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bobby ButterPaws with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 27.271 billion Otters hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kelp City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Otterian economy, worth a remarkable 7,988 trillion splashes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 292,933 splashes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Bobby ButterPaws has a wardrobe full of fake designer suits, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions. 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 clam, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

BearNation is ranked 178,554th in the world and 335th in Gay for Highest Average Tax Rates, with -1.61 Effective Tax Rate.
