The OSEAN CONFEDERATION of Heloonia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arthur Fletcher with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 1.494 billion Heloonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helocia. The average income tax rate is 38.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Heloonian economy, worth 64.5 trillion OSUS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 43,180 OSUS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, Arthur Fletcher's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Heloonia's national animal is the Moltres, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Heloonia is ranked 69,155th in the world and 3,105th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -9.14 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
