The Federal Republic of The Highland Union is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 292 million Highlanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Warwick. The average income tax rate is 31.8%.

The thriving Highlandic economy, worth 24.5 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,037 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Cold medicines curiously become cheaper when government officials sneeze, eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and imitation is the sincerest form of felony. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Highland Union's national animal is the gryphon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Highland Union is ranked 32,888th in the world and 1,657th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,178.47 Tourists Per Hour.
