The United Kingdom of The Teddy is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Teddy the Great with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, flagrant waste-dumping, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 16.065 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bearia. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The thriving Teddyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,095 trillion Ted Rings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,427 Ted Rings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, murderers with law degrees can be seen swinging the gavel in courts, adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, and the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers. 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 227,290th in the world and 8,476th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -253.91 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
