The Terrifying dictatorship of Helix Labs is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by GLaDOS with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.079 billion Helixians 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, 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Helixian economy, worth a remarkable 1,267 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 208,486 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 651,765 per year while the poor average 51,170, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.

Poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, love is a precious butterfly to be crushed under diplomatic protocol, the Dire Wolf stadiums are open 24/7, and millions of Helixians are excellent swimmers. 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 168,056th in the world and 9,133rd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 29.15 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
