The Matriarchy of Mommabear is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Chairbear Ma with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate population of 6.283 billion Momma's little angels enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 42.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Mommabearian economy, worth 321 trillion Hugs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,235 Hugs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

It ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Mommabear, lending money has become a major liability, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community. Crime is totally unknown. Mommabear's national animal is the Momma Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mommabear is ranked 103,175th in the world and 2nd in Bear Country for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 131.35 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
