The People's Commune of Helvurium is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Politburo with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.509 billion Helvurians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helvae. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Helvurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,409 trillion Tuskmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 97,151 Tuskmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, there are no more heroes any more, and undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations. Crime is totally unknown. Helvurium's national animal is the Helvurian Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Helvurium is ranked 270,607th in the world and 196th in The Social Liberal Union for Most Patriotic, with 0.44 flags saluted per person per day.
