The Singapore Oriented Republic of Free Bears is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lee Kuan Yew with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 28.078 billion Free Bearsians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Free Bears City. The average income tax rate is 11.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Free Bearsian economy, worth a remarkable 4,855 trillion medveds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 172,929 medveds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Every workday begins with group therapy, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares. Crime is totally unknown. Free Bears's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Free Bears is ranked 48,187th in the world and 2,565th in Osiris for Lowest Crime Rates, with 70.26 law-abiding acts per hour.
