The United Kingdom of Centristvill is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Grant with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 5.211 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 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Centristvillian economy, worth a remarkable 1,146 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 219,963 Cents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, and children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night. 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 4,058th in the world and 170th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,935.82 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
