Location: the South Pacific

Regional Influence: Sprat


The Republic of Heliophilia is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its aversion to nipples, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed population of 743 million Heliophilians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fernweg. The average income tax rate is 19.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Heliophilian economy, worth 73.3 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 98,630 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Commuters and their desktops both bemoan their hard drives, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, the nation refuses to provide international aid, and military information leaks are **REDACTED** by **REDACTED** in **REDACTED**. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Heliophilia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Heliophilia is ranked 10,168th in the world and 287th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 79,890.62 Standard Monetary Units.
