The Free Bears of Bears Armed is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chairbear of the High Council with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.688 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 5,194 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 251,084 thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 861,414 per year while the poor average 53,714, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, armed police units patrol the roads late at night, the police force is on a recruitment drive, and Bears Armed successfully hosted the International Democratic Union Olympics. Crime, especially youth-related, is a 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 72nd in International Democratic Union and 143,606th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -7 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
