The Talking Bears

Population17.694 billion


The Free Land of The Talking Bears is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.694 billion Talking Bears enjoy frequent elections, which are uniformly corrupted by big-spending corporations buying politicians who best suit their interests.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.8%.

The strong Bearish economy, worth 897 trillion promises a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 50,698 promises, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 342,598 per year while the poor average 2,774, a ratio of 123 to 1.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been recorded, the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, and murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour. Crime is a problem. The Talking Bears's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Talking Bears is ranked 128,889th in the world and 25th in Narnia for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 24.25 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
