Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Eternal Society of Helido is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Logan McArdle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.721 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karuga. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Helidonian economy, worth 598 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 160,897 yhones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Logan McArdle has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, major internet servers have acquired citizenship, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, and airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory. 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 167,177th in the world and 9,279th in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 22 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
