I've looked for square monitors myself — they don't appear to exist, unless you were to get one custom-built, though I don't know how one would go about that.
Televisions are even less likely to be square.

If I designed a monitor under no pretentions it would be 1:1. It's no harder to look up/down than it is to look left/right.

About the black bars, OP is best just getting a 4:3 monitor/television and setting a custom 1:1 resolution via one's video card. I can't vouch for how well that'd work on a non-CRT screen though.
