The Short Stacc of BearStackof2015 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Panda with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.017 billion BearStacks are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bearstonia. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient BearStackian economy, worth 529 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 175,615 Roombas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Panda's Twitcher account is typically used to share BearStack memes rather than government policy, restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, and you're only as old as you feel. Crime is totally unknown. BearStackof2015's national animal is the BearStack, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BearStackof2015 is ranked 6,672nd in the world and 172nd in The East Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 101.76 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
