Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Military High Council of Helghan Minoris is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Governor-General Wilhelm Stauffenberg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.457 billion Helghast are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Visari's Hope. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.4%.

The all-consuming Helghast economy, worth 681 trillion Helghan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 197,240 Helghan Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 656,488 per year while the poor average 44,158, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.
