The Free Bears of Bears Armed is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chairbear of the High Council with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.176 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, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Council Groves. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Urrsish economy, worth a remarkable 6,273 trillion golden thalers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 270,673 golden thalers, with the richest citizens earning 9.0 times as much as the poorest.

Artists are pillars of society, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and the government is known to care more about its buildings than its people. Crime is well under control. Bears Armed's national animal is the goldilocks, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is One Plus Seven.

Bears Armed is ranked 162,810th in the world and 92nd in International Democratic Union for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -38.47 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
