The Crowned Republic of Highton Islands is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prince Diego II with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 11.031 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 61.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hightonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,617 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 146,619 Blocks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

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 9,109th in the world and 363rd in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 126 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
