The ENDORSE TEPERTOPIA of Heliosphere is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, soft-spoken computers, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 14.051 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 8,963 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 637,931 Novas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Novas of property damage, and grannies with arthritic hands work miserably on factory production lines. 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 276,369th in the world and 11,988th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -30.72 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
