The Oppressed Peoples of Hellei is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Lucian with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, aversion to nipples, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.012 billion Helleians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bellain. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.4%.

The powerhouse Helleian economy, worth 569 trillion Grains a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,788 Grains, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 371,565 per year while the poor average 16,453, a ratio of 22.6 to 1.

Hellei is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, discarded pennies litter the streets, and native tribes have been driven to extinction by hunting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hellei's national animal is the Leader, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lucianio.

Hellei is ranked 37,632nd in the world and 263rd in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 29.93 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
