The Free Bears of Bears Armed is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chairbear of the High Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.977 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 5,801 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 263,981 golden thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 770,074 per year while the poor average 71,504, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

The government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, army rations are served on silver platters, mathematicians are hated by children across the country, and the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks. 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 5,930th in the world and 10th in International Democratic Union for Smartest Citizens, with 94.91 Quips Per Hour.
