The United Kingdom of The Teddy is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Teddy the Great with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.346 billion The 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bearia. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The strong Teddyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,129 trillion T Rings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 120,841 T Rings, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 372,547 per year while the poor average 30,260, a ratio of 12.3 to 1.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife, and the nation's infamous rickshaw ambulances often double as hearses. 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 9,833rd in the world and 456th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,179.14 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
