The Armed Republic of Hellingrad is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Isen Drak with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, national health service, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.648 billion Hellingradians 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drachenhölle. The average income tax rate is 62.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hellingradian economy, worth 182 trillion Saints a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 110,437 Saints, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Hellingrad, the question of 'what is Isen Drak's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, and Hellingradians refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hellingrad's national animal is the Timber Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hellingrad is ranked 41,324th in the world and 1,326th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,890.74 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
