The Republic of Aquilonia-Caithness is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 24.684 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.

Children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, abortions are routinely performed in Aquilonia-Caithness's hospitals, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and Aquilonia-Caithness's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region. 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 93rd in the world for Safest, scoring 3,091.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
