The Burlesque Republic of The Centauri is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Jaffa with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.456 billion Centauris are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defence, Commerce, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centauri Prime. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

The government is cracking down on subversive groups, a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, and the nation's youth is held blameless for all crimes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. The Centauri's national animal is the Narn, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is the pantheon of fifty deities, and its currency is the ducket.

The Centauri is ranked 15th in Wysteria and 444th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 15 on the Hayek Index.
