The United Kingdom of Centristvill is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Grant with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.69 billion Centristvillians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blackmount. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Centristvillian economy, worth 456 trillion Cents a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 169,833 Cents, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, and creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project. 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 166,306th in the world and 7,510th in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 35.54 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
