The Free Bears of Bears Armed is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by ChairBear of the High Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 37.677 billion Bears hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Council Groves. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Urrsish economy, worth an astonishing 14,012 trillion golden thalers a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 371,901 golden thalers, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is International Democratic Union's leading manufacturer of intricately-patterned sweaters, the government is known to care more about its buildings than its people, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, and ChairBear of the High Council is spearheading a new fashion trend of wearing swimming goggles and medieval armour. Crime is totally unknown. Bears Armed's national animal is the goldilocks, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is One Plus Seven.

Bears Armed is ranked 837th in the world and 1st in International Democratic Union for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 21,575.1 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
