The Commonwealth of Helicopteria is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.437 billion Helicopterians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Rotors. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Helicopterian economy, worth 381 trillion Freedom Bucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 110,953 Freedom Bucks, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Enemy agents are generally eliminated with extreme prejudice, petitions to the government are being used to insulate politicians' office walls, Helicopteria shot first, and the nation's infamous rickshaw ambulances often double as hearses. Crime is moderate. Helicopteria's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Profit.

Helicopteria is ranked 45,271st in the world and 1st in Unified Capitalist Alliance for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,892.36 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
