The Wrath of The United Peoples of Centrism is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Phoebe Bridgers with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.378 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 1,202 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 188,466 Melange Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, a little pushing and pulling is needed for big ships to pass, and newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names. 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 28,201st in the world and 109th in Europeia for Most Income Equality, scoring 72.82 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
