Helghan Killzone

Population14.069 billion


The Queen's State of Helghan Killzone is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.069 billion Helghan Killzoneans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with Industry and Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.5%.

The powerhouse Helghan Killzonean economy, worth 490 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 34,860 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 123,394 per year while the poor average 7,110, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Elections have been outlawed and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is a problem. Helghan Killzone's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Helghan Killzone is ranked 173,559th in the world and 7th in Saint Georges for Rudest Citizens, with 30.2 Insults Per Minute.
