The Serene Democracy of Bear Connors Paradiso is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dr Eamer with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 22.623 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mark Barry Michael. The average income tax rate is 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient a Bear economy, worth a remarkable 6,665 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 294,620 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Distrust of taps has many people bathing only with bottled mineral water, grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths, heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual, and corporate lobbying has been outlawed. 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 239,839th in the world and 8,198th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -68.41 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
