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 avant-garde cinema, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 37.646 billion Bears hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government 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 an astonishing 13,993 trillion golden thalers a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 371,702 golden thalers, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife, it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, brains have been removed from lists of best brain foods, and the nation is International Democratic Union's leading manufacturer of intricately-patterned sweaters. 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 52,075th in the world and 19th in International Democratic Union for Nudest, with 202.75 cheeks per square mile.
