The Terrifying dictatorship of Helix Labs is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by GLaDOS with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.796 billion Helixians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helix Labs City. The average income tax rate is 50.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Helixian economy, worth a remarkable 1,973 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 224,411 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, government solves problems by tossing money at the nearest geek, and getting an autograph has become harder than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Helix Labs's national animal is the Dire Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Helix Labs is ranked 4,909th in the world and 293rd in Osiris for Most Avoided, scoring 491.98 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
