The Autarchy of Second Helghan Empire is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Gustav Stazko with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.864 billion Helghast are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konstantine. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.8%.

The powerhouse Helghast economy, worth 393 trillion Visaris a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an impressive 101,852 Visaris, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 405,592 per year while the poor average 17,228, a ratio of 23.5 to 1.

Reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness', the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Konstantine. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Second Helghan Empire's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Ghastism.

Second Helghan Empire is ranked 88,291st in the world and 19th in New Ausozera for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,426.42 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
