The United Kingdom of The Teddy is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Teddy the Great with a fair hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 18.652 billion Teddians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bearia. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The thriving Teddyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,441 trillion Ted Rings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,909 Ted Rings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers, baiting is a national sport, and employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Teddy's national animal is the Great Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Great Grand Church of the Teddy.

The Teddy is ranked 3,444th in the world and 166th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 16,847.75 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
