OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Aquilonia-Caithness is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 24.983 billion Aquilonia-Caithnessians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

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.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, the government has hired out-of-work fashion designers to design purses for men, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, and citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements. 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 5th in Katasia and 112,256th in the world for Best Weather, with -1,129 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
