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 museums and concert halls, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.987 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, prioritizes Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. 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 4,890 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 244,708 thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 866,189 per year while the poor average 49,915, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and EpiPen sales have skyrocketed. 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 95th in International Democratic Union and 119,005th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -17 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
