The Crowned Republic of Highton Islands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prince Diego II with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, zero percent divorce rate, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 11.72 billion Hightonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Highton City. The average income tax rate is 62.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hightonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,717 trillion Blocks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,549 Blocks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 is totally unknown. 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 225,594th in the world and 8,585th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -513.23 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
