Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Eternal Society of Helido is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Logan McArdle with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.982 billion Helidonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karuga. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Helidonian economy, worth 479 trillion yhones a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 160,912 yhones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, and the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm. Crime is totally unknown. Helido's national animal is the Sun Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Helido is ranked 146,124th in the world and 7,302nd in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -18.11 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
