The Free Bears of Bears Armed is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chairbear of the High Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.151 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 9,065 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 322,029 golden thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,086,240 per year while the poor average 70,672, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, Bears seem to be catching more chills, Urrsish housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Chairbear of the High Council, and young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness'. 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 174,327th in the world and 125th in International Democratic Union for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -39.8 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
