The 🐻🐻 Big Bad Bear-Boi 🐻🐻 of Ursidae is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.549 billion Ursidaeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Environment, Education, and Welfare also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Ursidaean economy, worth 71.7 trillion Salmon a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 46,258 Salmon, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, unemployed mercenaries drift the country looking for new careers, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, and there's a mortuary next to every Ursidaean restaurant. Crime is totally unknown. Ursidae's national animal is the Human, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ursidae is ranked 33,269th in the world and 1,478th in the Rejected Realms for Most Income Equality, scoring 67.45 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
