The New Genesis of The Republic of Helios is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Lord of Light with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.32 billion Heliosians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sun City. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Republic of Heliosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,354 trillion Sun Stones a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,441 Sun Stones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBRH Governor goes house hunting, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, and banning party poppers has been a real party pooper. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Republic of Helios's national animal is the pheonix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Republic of Helios is ranked 4,408th in the world and 251st in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.29 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
