The Commonwealth of Teien Isles is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 341 million Teien Islesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.3%.

The strong Teien Islesian economy, worth 18.2 trillion credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 53,443 credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Classes at Teien Isles City University get canceled on Brancaland's Independence Day, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and the suicide rate mysteriously skyrockets during census years. Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Teien Isles's national animal is the sealion, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Teien Isles is ranked 190,110th in the world and 19th in Hiyamashu for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.73 kickbacks per hour.
