The New Genesis of The Republic of Helios is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Lord of Light with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.891 billion Heliosians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sun City. The average income tax rate is 88.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Republic of Heliosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,215 trillion Sun Stones a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,511 Sun Stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBRH Governor goes house hunting, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, and banning party poppers has been a real party pooper. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Republic of Helios's national animal is the pheonix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Republic of Helios is ranked 21,912th in the world and 1,033rd in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 78.92 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
