The Community of Heptahelios is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 597 million Heptaheliosians 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 Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clupstrib. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Heptaheliosian economy, worth 56.2 trillion Faras a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,071 Faras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Heptaheliosian Embarrassments, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Faras charge on their phone bill, and the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Heptahelios's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Heptahelios is ranked 61,397th in the world and 2,822nd in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 65.38 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
