The United Peoples of Centrism

The Protector of The United Peoples of Centrism is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Phoebe Bridgers with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.359 billion Centrists are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arrakeen. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Centrist economy, worth a remarkable 1,197 trillion Melange Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 188,383 Melange Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, refugees from other nations are flocking to The United Peoples of Centrism's border, illegal hunting is rife after veganism was recently made compulsory, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Peoples of Centrism's national animal is the Maker, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Swiftism.

The United Peoples of Centrism is ranked 3,596th in the world and 51st in Europeia for Smartest Citizens, with 145.78 quips per hour.
