The Baggy-Eyed Exonians of Heliseum is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Magnus with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.596 billion Helizis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pantheon. The average income tax rate is 53.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Heliseun economy, worth 139 trillion dickeys a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,492 dickeys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless, bike rage is all the rage, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, and commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Heliseum's national animal is the Kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Heliseum is ranked 5,715th in the world and 499th in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 7,902 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
