Bear Connors Paradiso

Population21.256 billion

CapitalMark Barry Michael
LeaderDr Eamer


The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, vat-grown people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 21.256 billion Bears enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mark Barry Michael. The average income tax rate is 1.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Bear economy, worth a remarkable 6,112 trillion euros 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 Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 an amazing 287,578 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', an increasing number of animal species are named 'Bob', Swan is one of the most popular forenames in Bear Connors Paradiso, and cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bear Connors Paradiso's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is agnostic.

Bear Connors Paradiso is ranked 2,058th in the world and 70th in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 181,067.65 Standard Monetary Units.
