The United Atolls of Aquila Islands is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Nicholas Jones with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.242 billion Aquila Islanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grimmsborough. The average income tax rate is 22.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Aquila Islander economy, worth 85.4 trillion Aquila Islander Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,779 Aquila Islander Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

A sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is well under control. Aquila Islands's national animal is the White-Tailed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aquila Islands is ranked 73,976th in the world and 2,750th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 91.89061480108 Days.
