The Incorporated States of TheHelghanCorporation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.287 billion TheHelghanCorporationians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Industry and Defense are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The powerhouse TheHelghanCorporationian economy, worth a remarkable 1,176 trillion Euros a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 57,972 Euros, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 240,890 per year while the poor average 9,133, a ratio of 26.4 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, nudity is frowned upon, bicyclists are banned from major roads, and the police force is on a recruitment drive. Crime is moderate. TheHelghanCorporation's national animal is the Spider, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

TheHelghanCorporation is ranked 169,198th in the world and 2nd in Helghan for Safest, scoring 31.02 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
