The Cohorse Union Member State of Heloonia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Arthur Fletcher with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 1.735 billion Heloonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helocia. The average income tax rate is 53.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Heloonian economy, worth 74.0 trillion OSUS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 42,658 OSUS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, large sections of Heloonia have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, military pistols are more secure than the national treasury, and theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Heloonia's national animal is the Moltres, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
