Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Still a Bear of BearNation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bobby ButterPaws Nick with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, national health service, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 26.296 billion Bears 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 New Bear City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient bearish economy, worth a remarkable 7,573 trillion bearpaws a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 288,014 bearpaws, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangness and Sorcery, euthanasia is illegal, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, and shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned. 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 1,159th in the world and 3rd in Gay for Largest Black Market, with 719 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
