Bears Armed was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 124

The Free Bears of Bears Armed is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chairbear of the High Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 31.622 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, liberal, 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 10,682 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 337,815 golden thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,162,941 per year while the poor average 71,895, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.

People with political aspirations study how to make balloon animals, the diplomatic corps stinks, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events. 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 2,049th in the world and 5th in International Democratic Union for Largest Populations, with 31.6 billion Capita.
