The Revolutionary Republic of Highfort is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Robert Vale with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.872 billion Highfort Citizens love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The High Fort. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Highfortian economy, worth a remarkable 1,968 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 165,835 High Pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, music teachers are commonly seen busking in order to fund their music programs, and sleeping on the job is recommended. 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 158,988th in the world and 4,766th in the Rejected Realms for Most Devout, with 3.4 Prayers Per Hour.
