The Crowned Republic of Highton Islands is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Alex Calabrese with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.408 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 53.8%.

The strong Islish economy, worth 372 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 frequent. Average income is an impressive 109,426 Blocks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, boys who even ask about cheerleading are placed on the Sex Offenders Register, and government officials are held to the highest standard of morality. 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.

Highton Islands is ranked 121,702nd in the world and 6,733rd in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 11.24 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
