The Crowned Republic of Highton Islands is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Prince Diego II with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, triple-decker prams, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.642 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 45.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Hightonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,496 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 155,238 Blocks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 566,479 per year while the poor average 30,206, a ratio of 18.8 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 is relatively low. 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 189,428th in the world and 9,067th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.29 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
