The Republic of Heiltsuk is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 14.676 billion Heiltsukians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bella Bella. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Heiltsukian economy, worth a remarkable 5,468 trillion Fish a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 372,635 Fish, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's no representation without taxation, an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, schoolboys trained in chivalry are encouraged to duel other boys for a maiden's hand, and sly spies try to rely on national allies so that they don't die. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Heiltsuk's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Heiltsuk is ranked 460th in the world and 18th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 98.92 on the Human Development Index.
