Bears Armed was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 124

The Free Bears of Bears Armed is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chairbear of the High Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, smutty television, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 33.848 billion Bears hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Council Groves. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Urrsish economy, worth an astonishing 11,954 trillion golden thalers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 353,179 golden thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,199,375 per year while the poor average 76,727, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

The nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, prisoners have been known to host cooking and home décor television shows, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, and Chairbear of the High Council is spearheading a new fashion trend of wearing swimming goggles and medieval armour. Crime is totally unknown. Bears Armed'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 is ranked 2,301st in the world and 5th in International Democratic Union for Smartest Citizens, with 173.47 quips per hour.
