The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ritual sacrifices, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 20.952 billion Bears enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mark Barry Michael. The average income tax rate is 1.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Bear economy, worth a remarkable 5,973 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, quite 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 285,087 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The diplomatic corps stinks, the government is encouraging violence on television, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, and people who make the leader's blood boil get boiled. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 204,993rd in the world and 7,649th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 1.19 Effective Tax Rate.
