The Most Serene Republic of Centromuria is a huge, genial nation, ruled by The Concillieros with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 752 million Centromuriens 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castiglione. The average income tax rate is 64.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Centromurien economy, worth 86.6 trillion Castios a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,186 Castios, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister, streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, and the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Centromuria's national animal is the Cranky Johnny, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
