The New Genesis of The Republic of Helios is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The Lord of Light with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.833 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, 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 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Republic of Heliosian economy, worth 721 trillion Sun Stones a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,666 Sun Stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBRH Governor goes house hunting, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, and burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony. 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 10,012th in the world and 489th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 113 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
