The Commonwealth of Centralis-Trustia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Martin Watson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2 billion Centraliers and Trustians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rigel. The average income tax rate is 41.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Centerist and Trustian economy, worth 200 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,289 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, sex changes are routinely performed at Centralis-Trustia's hospitals, the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, and it's been a banner year for local vexillology. Crime is totally unknown. Centralis-Trustia's national animal is the Turkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Centralis-Trustia is ranked 18,840th in the world and 1,059th in Lazarus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,390.11 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
