The Federal Republic of High Wings is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 427 million High Wingsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mother Claw. The average income tax rate is 17.2%.

The thriving High Wingsian economy, worth 36.1 trillion Bird Wings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 84,491 Bird Wings, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, any reference to a higher being is punished with public shaming, '.lib' or '.con' domains indicate whether High Wingsian websites are meant for liberals or conservatives, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. High Wings's national animal is the Mother Bird, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

High Wings is ranked 72,241st in the world and 2,277th in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,576.9 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
