Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Burlesque Republic of The Centauri is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Jaffa with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, avant-garde cinema, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.105 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 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 Centaurian economy, worth an astonishing 27,368 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 909,101 duckets, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,810,723 per year while the poor average 58,295, a ratio of 99.7 to 1.

People caught mistreating The Centauri's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and production of license plates has dropped as prisoners' hands are far too greasy to operate machinery. 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 9th in the world and 2nd in Wysteria for Most Armed, with 238.7 Weapons Per Person.
