The Hardline Agnostics of Teddymania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Revered Chairwoman with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, ban on automobiles, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 31.834 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.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Psychopolis. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Teddymanian economy, worth 319 trillion South Sea Pesos a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 10,045 South Sea Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Teddymania is ranked 24,261st in the world and 2nd in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha for Safest, scoring 107.12 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
