Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rumbling Tummies of Bearistotle and Hebert is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The King and Pope with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 23.721 billion Cute and Cuddly Bears enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small, liberal government is primarily concerned with Environment, with Social Policy, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Sofa. The average income tax rate is 16.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Cute and Cuddly economy, worth 153 trillion preapprovedcreditcards a year, is highly specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 6,479 preapprovedcreditcards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, anniversaries of major historical events pass unnoticed, and online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Bearistotle and Hebert. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bearistotle and Hebert's national animal is the Little Old Lady, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chocolism.

Bearistotle and Hebert is ranked 63,516th in the world and 11th in The House at Pooh Corner for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 616.05 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
