The Connor MacLeod Immortality of The Highlander 1 is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Awakening with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 35.3 billion Highlanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glenfinnan Scotland. The average income tax rate is 63.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient The Highlander economy, worth a remarkable 5,410 trillion Severed Heads a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,279 Severed Heads, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Merry Birthday is a popular protest song despite the risk of fines and royalty dues, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and high school career advisors advise belligerent loners to consider vigilantism. Crime is totally unknown. The Highlander 1's national animal is the Awakening, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Quickening.

The Highlander 1 is ranked 145,617th in the world and 11th in Ile de France for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.48 Crimes Per Hour.
