The Crowned Republic of Highton Islands is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prince Diego II with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.656 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 1,498 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 39,944th in the world and 1,716th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 64.89 on the Rand Index.
