The Diplomatic Immunity of Bears Armed Mission is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Artorrios o SouthWoods with a fair hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.694 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, is primarily concerned with Environment, although Education is also considered important, while Social Policy and Public Transport receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brer Bear's FunPark. The average income tax rate is 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Urrsish economy, worth a remarkable 2,096 trillion golden thalers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 101,302 golden thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Goldilocks Dung" has been declared a national treasure, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bears Armed Mission'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 Mission is ranked 4,150th in the world and 9th in International Democratic Union for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 12,009.75 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
