The Short Stacc of BearStackof2015 is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Panda with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.784 billion BearStacks are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bearstonia. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient BearStackian economy, worth 475 trillion Roombas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 170,886 Roombas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Animal control is going door-to-door releasing all pets back into the wild, polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, and conspiracy nuts claim that the government is trying to bring about an end to civilisation. Crime is totally unknown. BearStackof2015's national animal is the BearStack, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BearStackof2015 is ranked 34,444th in the world and 495th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 475 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
