The Imperium of The Vekta-Helghast Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Scholar Hayden with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, avant-garde cinema, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.654 billion Helghasts are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyrrhus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Vekta-Helghast Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 5,014 trillion Vektoghasts a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 320,326 Vektoghasts, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,502,092 per year while the poor average 40,726, a ratio of 36.9 to 1.

Scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, Helghasts caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, and peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Vekta-Helghast Empire's national animal is the Vektan Hound, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

The Vekta-Helghast Empire is ranked 62,713th in the world and 19th in Fifth Empire for Most Stationary, with 126.89302295508 Days.
