The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 25.333 billion Bears have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mark Barry Michael. The average income tax rate is 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient a Bear economy, worth a remarkable 8,330 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 328,839 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians, tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites, and the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds. 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 353rd in the world and 12th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 321.67 quips per hour.
