The Sick Beat of Isbjorn Maerenne Bava Paerani is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Your Favorite Weeaboo with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, free-roaming dinosaurs, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.618 billion Isbjornians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Administration, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drevesina. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Isbjornian economy, worth a remarkable 1,991 trillion toskovats 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Retail, Furniture Restoration, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. 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 231,091 toskovats, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,328,180 per year while the poor average 19,315, a ratio of 68.8 to 1.

It is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', politicians fear the otherworldly wrath of poorly made cheese, the blood on the hands of Your Favorite Weeaboo may not be metaphorical, and the consumption of vegetables is illegal. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Isbjorn Maerenne Bava Paerani's national animal is the Golden Lion Tamarin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is paganism.

Isbjorn Maerenne Bava Paerani is ranked 179,943rd in the world and 326th in Forest for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -5.66 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
