The People's Republic of Teesside is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.612 billion Teessideans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.0%.

The powerhouse Teessidean economy, worth 179 trillion Spitfires a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 111,089 Spitfires, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 356,159 per year while the poor average 26,283, a ratio of 13.6 to 1.

The fate of the world literally rests on Leader's fingers, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Teesside, and religious bigotry is not allowed but bigotry against theism is encouraged. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Teesside's national animal is the Pigeon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Teesside is ranked 38,896th in the world and 2,666th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 66.27 on the Human Development Index.
