The Burlesque Republic of The Centauri is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Emperor Jaffa with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.51 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.

Much of The Centauri's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, and churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings'. 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 4th in Wysteria and 6th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 40 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.

The Centauri is currently researching a cure.
