The dimension of a faithful realization of a finite abstract regular polytope in some euclidean space is no smaller than its rank. Similarly, that of a discrete faithful realization of a regular apeirotope is at least one fewer than the rank. Realizations which attain the minimum are said to be of full rank. The regular polytopes and apeirotopes of full rank in two and three dimensions were classified in an earlier paper. In this paper these polytopes and apeirotopes are classified in all dimensions. Moreover, it is also shown that there are no chiral polytopes of full rank.
