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, deadly medical pandemics, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 22.498 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 5,957 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 264,799 golden thalers, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, military spending recently hit a new high, and maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords. Crime is relatively low. 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 41,097th in the world and 30th in International Democratic Union for Most Pro-Market, scoring 58.78 on the Rand Index.
