The Muffin Critics of Bearistotle and Hebert is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The King and Pope with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, hatred of cheese, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 28.602 billion Cute and Cuddly Bears enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small, liberal government is primarily concerned with Environment, although Social Policy, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Sofa. The average income tax rate is 16.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Cute and Cuddly economy, worth 185 trillion preapprovedcreditcards a year, is highly specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 6,479 preapprovedcreditcards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, anniversaries of major historical events pass unnoticed, and online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Bearistotle and Hebert. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bearistotle and Hebert's national animal is the Little Old Lady, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chocolism.

Bearistotle and Hebert is ranked 120,305th in the world and 14th in The House at Pooh Corner for Most Pro-Market, scoring 30.11 on the Rand Index.
