Helvetia was settled by German and Swiss immigrants from Brooklyn, New York, in 1869. It was settled mostly by artisans, and has historically been associated with its cheese making and food festival in which masks are worn.
The town of Helvetia has had a fascination with making papier-mâché masks. Ten different masks can be acquired in-game, including a Fasnacht Man mask, an owl mask, jester masks, and skull masks.
The town was once a tourist destination and features German/Swiss themed buildings to showcase the town's heritage. There is a church, store/post office, bookstore, museum, Cheese Haus, The Honey Haus, Freyja's Haus Restaurant and a few other unmarked buildings. All buildings in Helvetia can be explored. The town is filled with the Scorched.
The church has been converted into a Mothman shrine. The key to the post office is sitting on an interior desk and can be taken grabbed from a broken window.
The town has a good number of crafting stations:
- Cooking station, in the Cheese Haus.
- Chemistry station, just inside the entrance and on the top floor of the church.
- Weapons workbench, upper floor of the church. A second one is in a small shack across from the vote counting station.

赫爾維蒂婭是現實存在於西維吉尼亞的小鎮，遊戲中還原了多處特色，例如弗蕾亞之屋餐廳便是來自當地的The Hütte Restaurant，位置也一模一樣。
