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. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 25.938 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 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Teddymania's radio stations, the government is phasing in welfare programmes to tackle poverty, and businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders. 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 18th in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha and 117,428th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -10 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
