The United Federation of Helmshire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Nathaniel Iscariot with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.156 billion Helmshireans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riverbend. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Helmshirean economy, worth 403 trillion Libertas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 127,961 Libertas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, and 'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Helmshire's national animal is the Ruzhan Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Solarism.

Helmshire is ranked 180,809th in the world and 2nd in Arkhon for Most Armed, with 0.24 Weapons Per Person.
