A vinicultural settlement in Quirm the country, some way Rimwards and Widdershins of Quirm the city. It is owned by M.Le Marquis des Aix-En-Pains, who also advises Moist von Lipwig concerning the dangers of the Maquis. The town is now a stop on the Fierté de Quirm Line and the next stop before Quirm city itself is Dunrobinville.

Annotation

Aix-en-Provence is a city in Southern France, perhaps most famous as the birthplace of painter Paul Cézanne.

Much like Djelibeybi, the name Aix-En-Pains is a verbal pun. Spoken aloud it becomes 'aches and pains'.
