The Rogue Nation of Hellstown is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.58 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 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hellian economy, worth 428 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 119,703 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 15,837th in the world and 806th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 299.76 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
