The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 22.231 billion Bears enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mark Barry Michael. The average income tax rate is 1.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Bear economy, worth a remarkable 6,524 trillion euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 293,508 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students, not many kids know Shakespeare's Hamlet but most of them have seen unofficial sequel Hamlet III - The Search For Osric, and claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense. 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 2,925th in the world and 92nd in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,277.51 Tourists Per Hour.
