The Free Bears of Bears Armed is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chairbear of the High Council with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 22.122 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 5,851 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 264,507 golden thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 762,739 per year while the poor average 72,816, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

More and more students are taking up a career in medicine, geosynchronous satellites are now manned by unpaid interns, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, and citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets. Crime is well under control. 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 1,830th in the world and 3rd in International Democratic Union for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.19 Years.
