Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Hairy Old Dude of BearNation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bobby ButterPaws Nick with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 26.492 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 7,641 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 288,459 bearpaws, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, children are expected to carve their own toys, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and anniversaries of major historical events pass unnoticed. 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 161,845th in the world and 272nd in Gay for Most Authoritarian, with zero Stalins.
