The Short Stacc of BearStackof2015 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Panda with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.004 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 enormous, 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 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient BearStackian economy, worth 527 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 175,534 Roombas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign despots proudly bandstand on BearStackian airwaves, boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers', artists are pillars of society, and the 'sing-a-long with Panda' album is a popular souvenir. Crime is totally unknown. BearStackof2015's national animal is the BearStack, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BearStackof2015 is ranked 4,969th in the world and 143rd in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 128.1 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
