The New Genesis of The Republic of Helios is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Lord of Light with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.746 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 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Republic of Heliosian economy, worth 809 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 83,072 Sun Stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 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 150,502nd in the world and 7,621st in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -18.06 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
