The United Kingdom of The Teddy is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Teddy the Great with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ritual sacrifices, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 11.144 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 97.7%.

The strong Teddyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,347 trillion Ted 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 120,892 Ted Rings, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Contestants on The Teddy's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, companies are turning to trained Great Bears for their most menial jobs, and the fines for getting caught with the wrong recipe book can force The Teddians into bankruptcy. 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 153,597th in the world and 7,755th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 23.15 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
