The Armed Republic of Helreach is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Lord Hans Gushne with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.668 billion Helreachians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krieg. The average income tax rate is 71.5%.

The powerhouse Helreachian economy, worth 288 trillion Helrian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,949 Helrian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, heavily-armed commandos play rock-paper-scissors over whether to execute criminals and foreign visitors, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and banning party poppers has been a real party pooper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Helreach's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Helreach is ranked 251,026th in the world and 12th in Global Right Alliance for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -22 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
