Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rogue Nation of Hellstown is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.678 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 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hellian economy, worth 322 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 120,479 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 29,474th in the world and 1,529th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 4,906.47 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
