The Republic of Helvumbia is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.274 billion Helvumbians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Geneva. The average income tax rate is 34.1%.

The strong Helvumbian economy, worth 101 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 79,401 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The Great Helvumbian Melting Pot boils out ethnic heritage, the wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service, and road rage is rarer but more terminal now that many people drive fully-operational battle tanks to work. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Helvumbia's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Helvumbia is ranked 33,219th in the world and 1,107th in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 83.5 Years.
