The Crowned Republic of Highton Islands is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Alex Calabrese with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.644 billion Hightonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Highton City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Hightonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,345 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 frequent. Average income is an impressive 155,644 Blocks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 574,224 per year while the poor average 29,769, a ratio of 19.3 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 7,599th in the world and 293rd in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 91,207.56 Standard Monetary Units.
