The United Kingdom of Centristvill is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Grant with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.643 billion Centristvillians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blackmount. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Centristvillian economy, worth a remarkable 1,496 trillion Cents a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 225,291 Cents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Centristvill's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Anglican Communion.

Centristvill is ranked 76,288th in the world and 2,845th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 70.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
