The Hardline Agnostics of Teddymania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Revered Chairwoman with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed population of 24.526 billion 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.

Abortions are routinely performed in Teddymania's hospitals, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, calling out of the blue has become taboo, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. 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 11th in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha and 118,766th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -8 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
