Sadie Bear

Population6.787 billion



The Commonwealth of Sadie Bear is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Sadie with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.787 billion Sadie Bears enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sadieville. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Sadie Bearian economy, worth 607 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 89,441 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world". Crime is totally unknown. Sadie Bear's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sadie Bear is ranked 10,724th in the world and 20th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,433.65 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
