Population393 million



The Community of BearStackof2015 is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 393 million BearStacks hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bearstonia. The average income tax rate is 51.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient BearStackian economy, worth 38.2 trillion Calzoneses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 97,137 Calzoneses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, and the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon. Crime is totally unknown. BearStackof2015's national animal is the BearStack, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BearStackof2015 is ranked 24,028th in the world and 647th in The East Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 54.47 Quips Per Hour.
