The Short Stacc of BearStackof2015 is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Panda with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.466 billion BearStacks are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bearstonia. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient BearStackian economy, worth 639 trillion Roombas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 184,650 Roombas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, BearStackian watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime is totally unknown. BearStackof2015's national animal is the BearStack, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BearStackof2015 is ranked 2,331st in the world and 74th in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,385.08 Tourists Per Hour.
