The Republic of Centurionis is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Praetorian Prefect with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.706 billion Centurionisians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Villa Agrippa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Centurionisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,451 trillion Dinariis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 254,410 Dinariis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,201,417 per year while the poor average 31,924, a ratio of 37.6 to 1.

Children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, petitioners are increasingly resorting to climbing through Praetorian Prefect's window to draw attention to their issues, and university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Centurionis's national animal is the Otter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Centurionis is ranked 28,307th in the world and 973rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 4,230.36 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
