The Republic of Aquilonia-Caithness is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 24.605 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.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, criminals are executed and their property seized, and the government has hired out-of-work fashion designers to design purses for men. 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 3rd in Katasia and 103,150th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -131 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
