The Nature Reserve of Helben is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 877 million Helbenians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helben City. The average income tax rate is 62.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Helbenian economy, worth 57.6 trillion Bitcoins a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,675 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Helben's national animal is the Sea Turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Helben is ranked 100,288th in the world and 321st in Forest for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
