The Confederacy of Heloonia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 462 million Heloonians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 26.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Heloonian economy, worth 20.5 trillion Helios Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 44,371 Helios Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, Calvinball training often involves digging escape tunnels, CSI Forest is this year's hit new crime show, and urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts. 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 156,166th in the world and 7,871st in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.18 Weapons Per Person.
