The Europeian Patriot of The United Peoples of Centrism is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Phoebe Bridgers with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.63 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 prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arrakeen. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Centrist economy, worth a remarkable 1,728 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 significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 200,268 Melange Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, lovesick people are told 'it's not them, it's you', young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. 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 3,631st in the world and 14th in Europeia for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 11,980.03 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
