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 25.318 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.

Poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, gun ownership is compulsory, and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. 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 111,767th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -169 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
