The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 14.34 billion Bears enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mark Barry Michael. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient a Bear economy, worth a remarkable 3,271 trillion euros a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 228,155 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and the central politburo bears the fruits of everyone's labor. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bear Connors Paradiso's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is agnostic.

Bear Connors Paradiso is ranked 151,436th in the world and 5,875th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -56.39 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
