The Cranky Old Grizzly of BearNation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bobby ButterPaws with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.314 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals 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.

Murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, BearNation's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The New Bear City Times is sold out. 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 1st in Gay and 61st in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 473 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
