The Republic of Aquilonia-Caithness is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 24.78 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.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Aquilonia-Caithness, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Aquilonia-Caithness City Times is sold out, much of Aquilonia-Caithness's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion. 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 113,268th in the world for Best Weather, with -1,134 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
