The Wayside of BearStackof2015 is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Panda with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.834 billion BearStacks hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bearstonia. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient BearStackian economy, worth 950 trillion Roombas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 196,553 Roombas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, dessert dishes make up the BearStackian breakfast menu, and awkward tourists are offered the 'unique experience' of rodeo clown. Crime is totally unknown. BearStackof2015's national animal is the BearStack, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BearStackof2015 is ranked 237,554th in the world and 8,180th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -20.77 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
