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 renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.391 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 23,020 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 872,277 duckets, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,483,932 per year while the poor average 34,717, a ratio of 186 to 1.

Murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, surveillance cameras are banned, young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness', and lending firms are subject to strict government regulations. 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 3rd in Wysteria and 4th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 45 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
