The Snow-Covered Land of Polar-bear is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 19.736 billion Polar-bearians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Public Transport, although Welfare is also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.9%.

The strong Polar-bearian economy, worth 496 trillion snows a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 25,153 snows, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 243,877 per year while the poor average 125, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

The nation's youth is held blameless for all crimes, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, refugees from other nations are flocking to Polar-bear's border, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Polar-bear's national animal is the polar bear, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Polar-bear is ranked 35,982nd in the world and 1st in Antarctic for Most Primitive, scoring 34.79 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
