The Burlesque Republic of The Centauri is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Jaffa with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.348 billion 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, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology industries.

Strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, soldiers are equipped with multi-million ducket battlesuits, and it's a common sight to see angry commuters with grenade launchers mounted on their vehicles. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. The Centauri's national animal is the Narn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is the pantheon of fifty deities, and its currency is the ducket.

The Centauri is ranked 3rd in Wysteria and 7th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 22,646 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
