The Empire of Helmich is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 923 million Helmichians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helmich City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.2%.

The thriving Helmichian economy, worth 67.0 trillion thalers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 72,569 thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 210,473 per year while the poor average 19,817, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

The Man in the Plastic Mask has been imprisoned in the Capital Penitentiary, the atmosphere in Helmichian boardrooms is turning more gay, no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, and being nicknamed "Orange Face" has done Leader's credibility no favours. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Helmich's national animal is the beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Helmich is ranked 288,289th in the world and 10,199th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 55 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
