The United Kingdom of Centristvill is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Grant with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 5.211 billion Centristvillians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blackmount. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Centristvillian economy, worth a remarkable 1,145 trillion Cents a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 219,860 Cents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, billions are being spent on a new island airport, worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts, and becoming a missionary is a sure-fire route to martyrdom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Centristvill's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Anglican Communion.

Centristvill is ranked 4,042nd in the world and 170th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,939.8 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
