The Republic of Hellbardia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Shogun with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.249 billion Hellbardians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frost City. The average income tax rate is 84.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Hellbardian economy, worth 576 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,424 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Shogun's new political program is often mockingly called 'Capitalism with a Bigtopian face', Phoenix is one of the most popular forenames in Hellbardia, the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers, and the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods. Crime is totally unknown. Hellbardia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Hellbardia is ranked 67,429th in the world and 166th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,941.81 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
