The Crowned Republic of Highton Islands is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Alex Calabrese with a fair hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, keen interest in outer space, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.756 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 57.2%.
The strong Islish economy, worth 401 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 106,803 Blocks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.
Party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", historical fiction has been banned, translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. 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.
