The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, rampant corporate plagiarism, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 20.971 billion Bears have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mark Barry Michael. The average income tax rate is 1.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Bear economy, worth a remarkable 5,951 trillion euros 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. 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 283,800 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Colonial subjects have a Bear culture shoved down their throats, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, and the nation honors the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered a Bear weed picker. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bear Connors Paradiso's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is agnostic.

Bear Connors Paradiso is ranked 205,189th in the world and 7,569th in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 7.55 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
