|Capital||Mark Barry Michael|
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 digital currency, compulsory military service, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 16.856 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, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Environment is also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. 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 4,057 trillion euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 240,709 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, the nation's school children are fluent in Klingon but lack basic mathematical skills, and students cut up leftover euros during Arts and Crafts. 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.
