The I dunno of BearStackof2015 is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Panda with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.182 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, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bearstonia. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient BearStackian economy, worth 784 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 187,544 Roombas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Bearstonia" t-shirts, a PhD just ain't what it used to be, international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through BearStackof2015, and Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping. Crime is totally unknown. BearStackof2015's national animal is the BearStack, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BearStackof2015 is ranked 2,319th in the world and 75th in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,412.05 Tourists Per Hour.
