The Revolutionary Republic of Highfort is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Robert Vale with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.182 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, although Defense, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, 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 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Highfortian economy, worth a remarkable 1,849 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 165,402 High Pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hackers post hourly updates on international summits, much of Highfort's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, and school uniforms are compulsory. 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 39,474th in the world and 1,909th in the Rejected Realms for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 70.57 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
