Teiden, officially the Grand Duchy of Teiden is a small, landlocked country in western CP, bordered by Orisgath, Steenia, and Holy Germania. Teiden has a population of under half a million people in an area of approximately 2,586 square kilometers (999 sq mi).
Teiden is a parliamentary representative democracy with a constitutional monarch; it is ruled by a Grand Duke. It is the world's only remaining sovereign Grand Duchy. The country has a highly developed economy, with the highest Gross Domestic Product per capita in the world as per IMF and WB. Its historic and strategic importance dates back to its founding as a Roman era fortress site and Frankish count's castle site in the Early Middle Ages. It was an important bastion along the Spanish road when Spainshland was the principal Capitalist power influencing the whole western hemisphere and beyond in the 16th–17th centuries.
Teiden is a founding member of the Capitalist Union, NATO, OECD, the United Nations, Benelux, and the Western Capitalist Union, reflecting the political consensus in favour of economic, political, and military integration. The city of Teiden, the capital and largest city, is the seat of several institutions and agencies of the Capitalist Union.
Teiden lies on the cultural divide between Romance CP and Germanic CP, borrowing customs from each of the distinct traditions. Teiden is a trilingual country; Germanian, Stteinese and Teidsh are official languages. Although a secular state, Teiden is predominantly Roman Catholic.
