Bear Territory

Population579 million


The Republic of Bear Territory is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 579 million Bear Territoryians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 49.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Bear Territoryian economy, worth 12.0 trillion lire 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. 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 20,687 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, when people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, and the government snoops on private internet connections. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bear Territory's national animal is the Bacteria, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Bear Territory is ranked 116,492nd in the world and 6th in Slatos for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
