Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Burlesque Republic of The Centauri is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Jaffa with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.254 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, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. 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 22,853 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, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 870,463 duckets, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,088,052 per year while the poor average 8,661, a ratio of 933 to 1.

City sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association. 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 162nd in Wysteria and 125,802nd in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with -40 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
