The Short Stacc of BearStackof2015 is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Panda with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.065 billion BearStacks hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bearstonia. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient BearStackian economy, worth 544 trillion Roombas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 177,671 Roombas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter. Crime is totally unknown. BearStackof2015's national animal is the BearStack, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BearStackof2015 is ranked 3,979th in the world and 122nd in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 94.85 on the Human Development Index.
