The Rogue Nation of Hellstown is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.433 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 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hellian economy, worth 642 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 118,204 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 56,294th in the world and 2,771st in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 152,367.72 Standard Monetary Units.
