The Democratic Republic of Higash is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 384 million Higashians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 39.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Higashian economy, worth 16.4 trillion pounds a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,587 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Higash's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Higash is ranked 33,157th in the world and 1,043rd in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 67.06 Years.
