The Community of BearStackof2015 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 387 million BearStacks hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, 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 49.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient BearStackian economy, worth 37.4 trillion Calzoneses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 96,720 Calzoneses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe, BearStackian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, and the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard. Crime is totally unknown. BearStackof2015's national animal is the BearStack, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BearStackof2015 is ranked 44,103rd in the world and 1,412th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,909.4 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
