The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, feral children, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 22.593 billion Bears enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mark Barry Michael. The average income tax rate is 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient a Bear economy, worth a remarkable 6,766 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 299,482 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, and boom-and-bust cycles are being peddled as economically inevitable. 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 240,081st in the world and 8,097th in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -35.12 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
