The Free Bears of Bears Armed is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chairbear of the High Council with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 22.943 billion Bears hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal, 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 6,170 trillion golden 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 268,939 golden thalers, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, and crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed. Crime is almost non-existent. 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 18,312th in the world and 36th in International Democratic Union for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
