The United Kingdom of The Teddy is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Teddy the Great with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 14.554 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 97.8%.

The strong Teddyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,772 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 121,794 Ted Rings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 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 189,286th in the world and 8,215th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -248.04 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
