The Free Land of The Talking Bears is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.126 billion Talking Bears enjoy frequent elections, which are uniformly corrupted by big-spending corporations buying politicians who best suit their interests.

The relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The Bearish economy, worth 534 trillion promises a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 48,010 promises, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 324,436 per year while the poor average 2,627, a ratio of 123 to 1.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been recorded, the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, and murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour. Crime is a problem. The Talking Bears's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Talking Bears is ranked 9th in The Council of Narnia and 30,900th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 87.9 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
