The Hardline Agnostics of Teddymania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Revered Chairwoman with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 25.059 billion Teddymanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Psychopolis. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, extreme political groups are outlawed, calling out of the blue has become taboo, and multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy". Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Teddymania's national animal is the Plush Sharkie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Pastafarianism, and its currency is the South Sea Peso.

Teddymania is ranked 2nd in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha and 301st in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 70 on the Enoch Index.
