The Free Bears of Bears Armed is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chairbear of the High Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.173 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.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Council Groves. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Urrsish economy, worth a remarkable 4,987 trillion thalers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 247,237 thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 875,142 per year while the poor average 50,431, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, high school principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bears Armed's national animal is the goldilocks, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is One Plus Seven.

Bears Armed is ranked 19th in International Democratic Union and 6,621st in the world for Most Politically Free, scoring 81 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
