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 deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.957 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 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 6,710 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 280,099 golden thalers, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, artists are pillars of society, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. 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 1,119th in the world and 3rd in International Democratic Union for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 16,491.49 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
