The Second Acharan Imperium of Bearstin is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Darius Black with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.797 billion Bearstinians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bearstin. The average income tax rate is 58.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Bearstinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,545 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 175,703 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

A third of Bearstinians are e-certified CEOs, gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, and government opponents tend to have their patents rejected immediately. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bearstin's national animal is the Grizzly Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Honor Code.

Bearstin is ranked 165,718th in the world and 20th in Federation of Allies for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -13.19 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
