The Eternal Misfortune of Heliosphere is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 14.29 billion Heliospherans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heliosphere City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Heliospheran economy, worth a remarkable 9,241 trillion Novas 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology and Cheese Exports. 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 a breathtaking 646,701 Novas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People can get away with murder these days, the Meteor is a protected species, extreme political groups are outlawed, and brazen mayors claim official expenses to pay for their drug habits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Heliosphere's national animal is the Meteor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Heliosphere is ranked 166,637th in the world and 7,383rd in the South Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 378.77 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
