Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The New Genesis of The Republic of Helios is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Lord of Light with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.565 billion Heliosians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sun City. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Republic of Heliosian economy, worth 612 trillion Sun Stones a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,021 Sun Stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color", sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, and interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBRH Governor goes house hunting. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Republic of Helios's national animal is the pheonix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Republic of Helios is ranked 7,911th in the world and 368th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 120.89 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
