Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Aquilonia-Caithness is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 30.443 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.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 strong Aquilonia-Caithnessian economy, worth a remarkable 2,096 trillion flayed chinchilla skins a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,878 flayed chinchilla skins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, and teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house. 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 1,630th in the world and 2nd in Katasia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.72 Years.
