The Colony of Hi hel is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 429 million Hel's Damneds have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Death Central. The average income tax rate is 44.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Hi helian economy, worth 17.8 trillion Souls a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,451 Souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, retirement apartments house giggling grannies who delightedly watch blank TVs all day long, weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements, and more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hi hel's national animal is the Ceberus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hi hel is ranked 93,289th in the world and 1,042nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,932.5 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
