The United Republic of the Helghan Race

LeaderScolar Visari

CurrencyHelghan Dollar

The Ascended Ultranationalists of The United Republic of the Helghan Race is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Scolar Visari with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.64 billion Helghast are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyrrhus. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Helghan economy, worth a remarkable 6,699 trillion Helghan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 491,141 Helghan Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,008,918 per year while the poor average 35,186, a ratio of 85.5 to 1.

Terrorists who are 17th cousins with the ex-wives of half-brothers of citizens are now exempt from the immigration ban, bins outnumber trees in city parks, movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens, and hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The United Republic of the Helghan Race's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Helghanism.

The United Republic of the Helghan Race is ranked 167th in the world and 1st in Imperium of the Wolves for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 32,138.1 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
