Do accents represent high tone?
If so, is it Oto-Manguean?

I'm not sure, honestly. I think it might depend on how the source was found. For instance, Googling a sample is not allowed, but if someone's seen a similar text in a source they've personally used before, they're allowed to go back to that source to double-check. Hopefully that makes sense.

Anyway, is the language spoken entirely in one country?

Yes.

And it's not Chibchan
