The Holy Empire of The State of Centralia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Rueben III with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.991 billion Centralians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central City. The average income tax rate is 48.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Centralian economy, worth 215 trillion Imperial Notes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 108,366 Imperial Notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Women wear burqas to avoid unwanted male attention, the tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, baseball caps are the new fashion trend, and perverts across the land rejoice after 'sexual harassment' was recently renamed 'persuasive courting'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The State of Centralia's national animal is the Turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

The State of Centralia is ranked 22,771st in the world and 59th in Sonindia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 215.42 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
