Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Burlesque Republic of The Centauri is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Jaffa with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, pith helmet sales, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.679 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.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centauri Prime. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient The Centaurian economy, worth an astonishing 26,944 trillion duckets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 907,876 duckets, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,901,921 per year while the poor average 33,123, a ratio of 208 to 1.

The nation's youth is held blameless for all crimes, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled The Centauri with a very polite populace, the nation's countrysides are littered with landmines due to ongoing family disputes, and the automobile industry is sitting up and taking notice of the new 24 hour race events... as are the track's sleepless neighbours. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Centauri's national animal is the Narn, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the pantheon of fifty deities.

The Centauri is ranked 4,264th in the world and 3rd in Wysteria for Most Pro-Market, scoring 93.67 on the Rand Index.
