The Entire Nation Made of Cheese of Helaw is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sovereign Alfonso with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, frequent executions, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 11.441 billion Helawans 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 enormous government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Venea. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Helawan economy, worth a remarkable 1,912 trillion Cheese Wheels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 167,177 Cheese Wheels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign powers often deal with problems that Helaw can't handle, for 25 Cheese Wheels tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy, lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, and the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Helaw's national animal is the Cheese-Based Walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Helaw is ranked 235,313th in the world and 77th in Ridgefield for Rudest Citizens, with 8.08 insults per minute.
