The Free Land of The Talking Bears is a gargantuan, devout nation, notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.346 billion Talking Bears enjoy frequent elections, which are uniformly corrupted by big-spending corporations buying politicians who best suit their interests.

The small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12%. A robust private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Tourism industries.

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 serious problem. The Talking Bears's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the promise.

The Talking Bears is ranked 1st in The Council of Narnia and 2,994th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 190 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
