The Republic of Hellbardia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Shogun with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.857 billion Hellbardians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frost City. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hellbardian economy, worth 879 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 181,156 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, tours to see the 'wild men of the mountains' are popular with tourists from the big cities, and companies have begun running campaigns to stop people from remembering their brand name. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hellbardia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Hellbardia is ranked 58,466th in the world and 110th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Populations, with 4.86 billion Capita.
