The Republic of Hel Odds is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and parental licensing program. The compassionate population of 834 million Hel Oddsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Hel Oddsian economy, worth 67.5 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 80,926 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, Leader has just been declared ruler of Hel Odds in an international press conference, and foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Hel Odds will pay them to stop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hel Odds's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hel Odds is ranked 21,659th in the world and 1,090th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 224.83 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
