OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Aquilonia-Caithness is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 25.163 billion Aquilonia-Caithnessians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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.

Public nudity is compulsory, abortions are routinely performed in Aquilonia-Caithness's hospitals, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 121,190th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -27 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
