The Grand Duchy of Teditania is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zaal Diogenes with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.229 billion Teditanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tedland. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Teditanian economy, worth 492 trillion T-Bucks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,462 T-Bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, people often feel unbalanced by their daily commute, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Teditania's national animal is the Rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Darmawa.

Teditania is ranked 12,100th in the world and 51st in United Kingdom for Smartest Citizens, with 84.24 quips per hour.
