The Great Sovereignty of Centrostate is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chief Director Breitenburg with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.733 billion Centrostatesmen are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Centrocity Prime. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Centrostate economy, worth 268 trillion Units a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 154,820 Units, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 622,696 per year while the poor average 25,760, a ratio of 24.2 to 1.

Families are only permitted to have one child, boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, destitute AIs lurk around online bulletin boards begging for spare Units, and new pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Centrostate's national animal is the Centrobird Classification 001, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is CentroCatholicism.

Centrostate is ranked 30,977th in the world and 10th in Meillur for Most Developed, scoring 66.28 on the Human Development Index.
