The Diplomatic Immunity of Bears Armed Mission is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Artorrios o SouthWoods with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.865 billion Bears hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brer Bear's FunPark. The average income tax rate is 5.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Urrsish economy, worth a remarkable 3,326 trillion golden thalers a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,773 golden thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, nude art is becoming wildly popular, holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases, and politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"). Crime is almost non-existent. Bears Armed Mission's national animal is the goldilocks, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is One Plus Seven.

Bears Armed Mission is ranked 167,172nd in the world and 119th in International Democratic Union for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -14.44 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
