The United Kingdom of The Teddy is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Teddy the Great with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 14.377 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 1,750 trillion Ted Rings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,760 Ted Rings, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

Saying the word 'eggplant' is now a criminal offense, small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Teddyian sovereign territory, corporate lobbying has been outlawed, and a rash of recently-elected candidates have begun to push Bigtopia-friendly policies. 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 101,968th in the world and 4,394th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 47.44 on the Rand Index.
