What is a LAND?

A LAND is your key to setting up your own personal Highrise server. You can customize the look and feel of your server, set your own rules and govern your citizens, release custom clothing and furniture, set up your own events and experiences, and invite others to set up rooms in your Highrise.

Build your own business by selling your server's items and hosting unique experiences.
