The Federal Republic of Helenaa is a tiny, genial nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, cynical population of 18 million Helenaans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.3%.

The strong Helenaan economy, worth 967 billion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. Average income is 53,771 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, military spending recently hit a new high, and banning party poppers has been a real party pooper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Helenaa's national animal is the Buffalo.

Helenaa is ranked 174,995th in the world and 35th in Founderless for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 28.13 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
