The Free Bears of Bears Armed is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chairbear of the High Council with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 27.747 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, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, 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 8,880 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, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 320,041 golden thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 907,235 per year while the poor average 90,227, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, babies are a small but significant export, many in Bears Armed are born in the purple, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime is totally unknown. 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 1,297th in the world and 6th in International Democratic Union for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 89 Workforce Participation Rate.
