The Crowned Republic of Highton Islands is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Alex Calabrese with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.08 billion Hightonians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Highton City. The average income tax rate is 68.2%.
The strong Islish economy, worth 410 trillion Blocks a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 100,688 Blocks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.
Pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', and much of Highton Islands's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem. Highton Islands's national animal is the Coco Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.
