The Republic of StalinBear is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.611 billion StalinBearians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant StalinBearian economy, worth 9.89 trillion milliStalins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 6,136 milliStalins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers are "encouraged" to advance by armed officers behind them, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, the government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, and poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. StalinBear's national animal is the Ice Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

StalinBear is ranked 226,446th in the world and 7,649th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 45.84 on the Human Development Index.
