Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rogue Nation of Hellstown is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.33 billion Hellians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Limbo. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hellian economy, worth 282 trillion Flyers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 121,207 Flyers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, books are so highly regarded in Hellstown that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Limbo, and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hellstown's national animal is the Aron, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hellstown is ranked 14,709th in the world and 732nd in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 68.53 Quips Per Hour.
