The Crowned Republic of Highton Islands is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Alex Calabrese with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.228 billion Hightonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Highton City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Hightonian economy, worth 959 trillion Blocks a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 153,993 Blocks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 642,547 per year while the poor average 24,090, a ratio of 26.7 to 1.

Calvinball players are lost for days as they wander the vast halls of their new academies, most of the population has had bad experiences with hoes, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and Hightonians are wondering where have all the flowers gone. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Highton Islands's national animal is the Coco Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Courantism.

Highton Islands is ranked 145,812th in the world and 8,171st in The North Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -6.71 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
