The Terrifying dictatorship of Helix Labs is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by GLaDOS with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.109 billion Helixians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helix Labs City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Helixian economy, worth a remarkable 1,278 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 209,305 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 647,267 per year while the poor average 52,181, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

Millions of Helixians are excellent swimmers, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, GLaDOS lights cigars with a hundred-Credit bill, and the government is often referred to as "the biggest drug dealer in the nation". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Helix Labs's national animal is the Dire Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Helix Labs is ranked 164,954th in the world and 8,922nd in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 32.85 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
