The Empire of Helghan2 is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 29.273 billion Helghans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Helghan2ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,009 trillion USDS a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,657 USDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, sex offenders find themselves 'cut off' from any ability to repeat their crimes, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and billions of USDs are being blown on orbital weapons development. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Helghan2's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Helghan2 is ranked 4,139th in the world and 2nd in vekta for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 9,323.59 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
