The Crowned Republic of Highton Islands is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Diego II with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 11.3 billion Hightonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Highton City. The average income tax rate is 64.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hightonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,636 trillion Blocks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 144,863 Blocks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Calvinball players are lost for days as they wander the vast halls of their new academies, most of the population has had bad experiences with hoes, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and Hightonians are wondering where have all the flowers gone. Crime is totally unknown. Highton Islands's national animal is the Coco Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Courantism.

Highton Islands is ranked 4,581st in the world and 273rd in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,354.41 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
