The Free Land of Highland Springs is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Duterteus with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.749 billion Highland Springsians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Center Spire. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.8%.

The all-consuming Highland Springsian economy, worth 232 trillion Zenies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 132,751 Zenies, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", decongestants have replaced Zenies in street transactions, and citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Highland Springs's national animal is the Tricorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ante Theism.

Highland Springs is ranked 55,528th in the world and 2,604th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 76.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
