Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Free Land of The Talking Bears is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.363 billion Talking Bears enjoy frequent elections, which are uniformly corrupted by big-spending corporations buying politicians who best suit their interests.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.

The Bearish economy, worth 561 trillion promises a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 49,388 promises, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 333,744 per year while the poor average 2,702, 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 2nd in The Council of Narnia and 17,235th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring 13 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
