The Oppressed Peoples of Hellei is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lucian with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, pith helmet sales, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.247 billion Helleians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bellain. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.5%.

The all-consuming Helleian economy, worth 421 trillion Grains a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,329 Grains, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, the Bellain Prison Revue puts on a better stage show than anything in the Theatre District, and citizens know not to ask what their country can do for them but what they can do as chained slaves for their country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hellei's national animal is the Leader, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lucianio.

Hellei is ranked 150,156th in the world and 1,095th in 10000 Islands for Highest Drug Use, scoring 4.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
