The Revolutionary Republic of Highfort is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Robert Vale with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.544 billion Highfort Citizens 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 enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The High Fort. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Highfortian economy, worth a remarkable 2,390 trillion High Pieces a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 164,373 High Pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Intelligence services are renowned for their godless ways, cities are engulfed by smog, the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, and getting an autograph has become harder than ever. Crime is totally unknown. Highfort's national animal is the Giant Tortoise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Highfort is ranked 6,353rd in the world and 228th in Balder for Highest Economic Output, with 2,390 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
