OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Aquilonia-Caithness is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 24.847 billion Aquilonia-Caithnessians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt individuals juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defence, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aquilonia-Caithness City. Income tax is unheard of. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

All forms of advertising are banned, poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Aquilonia-Caithness's national animal is the phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the flayed chinchilla skin.

Aquilonia-Caithness is ranked 4th in Katasia and 113,698th in the world for Best Weather, with -1,136 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
