The Republic of Aquilonia-Caithness is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 32.056 billion Aquilonia-Caithnessians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare is also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aquilonia-Caithness City. Income tax is unheard of.

The thriving Aquilonia-Caithnessian economy, worth a remarkable 2,552 trillion flayed chinchilla skins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Gambling and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 79,635 flayed chinchilla skins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage fathers are forced to join the army, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aquilonia-Caithness's national animal is the phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Aquilonia-Caithness is ranked 9,531st in the world and 3rd in Katasia for Smartest Citizens, with 86.12 Quips Per Hour.
