Hiltonia (formally known as the Republic of Hiltonia) is a country located on central Antarephia. Originally founded as the Hiltonian Kingdom in the early 16th century, Hiltonia has become heavily modernized with a full fledged transportation system as well as vibrant cityscapes throughout the country. The capital of Hiltonia as well as its largest city is Trenton, located within the Region of Stoneham. Other large notable cities include Hartford, Arkaden, and Hampton.
Hiltonia has two national highway systems - the Hiltonia Motorway Network, and the Hiltonia National Highway System. The Hiltonia National Highway System predated the Motorway system by at least 57 years. At a lower level, each Region of the country maintains their own network of highways and freeways.
National Highways in Hiltonia are denoted by the 'A' prefix and a 2, 3, or 4 digit number. Numbers are assigned by the Ministry of Transportation as well as the respective Regional Transportation cabinet. Numbers are assigned based on their proximity to one of four major cities in the country. 3-digit routes are assigned to roads that are significantly shorter than the primary 2-digit routes. Finally, 4-digit routes are short "connector" routes that facilitate movement between two other National Highways.
The Hiltonia Motorway Network is an intricate collection of freeways designed to a specific standard in order to facilitate high-speed travel throughout the country. Motorways are designated by the prefix 'M' and then a 2 or 3 digit number. Motorway routes ending in a 0 or 5 are considered 'principal routes' and travel a significant distance (usually about 3/4 the width or height of the country). The numbering system is an inverse version of the National Highway system in that the routes are numbered based on their proximity to one of four major cities.
All roads on the Motorway network (except the Hiltonia Mountain Freeway (M21)) are built as full limited-access facilities with interchanges that provide access to and from the Motorways and other roadways. Motorways are required to at least have 4-lanes of travel both ways (2 lanes on each side), with a 12 foot shoulder and at least a 2-3 foot median. Motorways are funded by the Motorway Act of 1971.
The last type of system of highway in Hiltonia is the Regional Highway System, which is a collection of numbered routes for a specific |Region. These highways may be either limited access or normal roadways, and may share designations with other routes of different systems.
In order to save money and space, Hiltonia allows roadways to share a number, be it a National, Motorway, or Regional route. The official term for this an 'overlap'. In the case of an overlap, the following order is to be used on signs: Motorway -> National -> Regional, with the highest tier of roadway placed on top of the others.
