The Tiger of Helseth is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hlaalu Helseth with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.529 billion Dunmer are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mournhold. The average income tax rate is 51.8%.

The thriving Dunmer economy, worth 363 trillion Drakes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 55,607 Drakes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, foreign leaders who don't applaud Hlaalu Helseth's speeches are regarded as enemies of Helseth, Tetris has been banned for its graphic violent content, and the sick and dying are locked in their homes with a red "X" painted on the front door. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Helseth's national animal is the Guar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tribunal.

Helseth is ranked 104,641st in the world and 4,475th in the Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 44.96 on the Hayek Index.
