The People's Republic of Helsaland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Nisos Themtaw with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.92 billion Helsalandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carnaka. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Helsalandian economy, worth 383 trillion fees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,270 fees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Popular candidates who don't suffer last-second political scandals tend to get fished out of the Carnaka River, government officials frown on anything more technologically advanced than an abacus, the government loves seeing the little people fight, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. Crime is totally unknown. Helsaland's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Helsaland is ranked 8,367th in the world and 5th in OmniOne for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 437.06 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
