The Republic of Hellbardia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Shogun with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.282 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frost City. The average income tax rate is 86.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hellbardian economy, worth 186 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,768 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government is coughing up funds for lung cancer victims, whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 83,334th in the world and 196th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 774.85 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
