The Ascended Ultranationalists of The United Republic of the Helghan Race is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Scolar Visari with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, strictly enforced bedtime, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.189 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 5,935 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 486,971 Helghan Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,642,607 per year while the poor average 106,869, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

New government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, gene-engineered sewerjacks don't smell but they do stink, vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments, and troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist. 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 14,967th in the world and 5th in Auralia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,515.04 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
