The Federal Republic of The Highland Union is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 221 million Highlanders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 28.9%.
The very strong Highlandic economy, worth 17.0 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is 76,988 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.
The army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, most barbers are also surgeons, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. 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.
