The Kingdom of Centrerook is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Lilith Ravenclaw with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-working, devout population of 3.017 billion Rookmen have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravenholm. The average income tax rate is 69.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Plumist economy, worth 255 trillion feathers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,763 feathers, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

No one is quite sure what many government officials look like, cheering flag-waving citizens don't like to think too hard about politics, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and judicial torture is outsourced overseas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Centrerook's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Highraven Plumism.

Centrerook is ranked 31,876th in the world and 2nd in Havenhome and Rook Wing for Most Influential, scoring 653 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
