The Empire of Teedemous is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Tee Sheps with an even hand, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.072 billion Teemonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Teedemousian economy, worth 131 trillion Teas a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 122,632 Teas, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage girls in knee-length surfer shorts have become a cultural icon of Teedemous, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', folk are absolutely certain that you can never be absolutely certain, and condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Teedemous's national animal is the fish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Teedemous is ranked 165,781st in the world and 6,895th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 49 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
