The Rogue Nation of Hellstown is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 6.17 billion Hellians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Limbo. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hellian economy, worth 730 trillion Flyers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 118,424 Flyers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, many marriages go virtually unconsummated, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, and edutainment video games are taking Hellstown's students to the next level. 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 31,032nd in the world and 1,524th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 28.91 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
