Bear Connors Paradiso

Population20.757 billion

CapitalMark Barry Michael
LeaderDr Eamer


The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, vat-grown people, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 20.757 billion Bears have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment and Industry also on the agenda, 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 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient a Bear economy, worth a remarkable 5,928 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 285,625 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients, Dr Eamer has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, and immigrants are asked to leave their cultural traditions and pride at the border. 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 166,348th in the world and 7,412th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 9.92 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
