The Community of BearStackof2015 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 381 million BearStacks hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bearstonia. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient BearStackian economy, worth 36.6 trillion Calzoneses 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, 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 95,933 Calzoneses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The election for Leader's office's janitor is heating up, the Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe. Crime is totally unknown. BearStackof2015's national animal is the BearStack, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BearStackof2015 is ranked 171,949th in the world and 6,679th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -11.83 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
