The People's Federal Republic of Centralis is a massive, safe nation, notable for its strong anti-business politics. Its hard-nosed population of 3.094 billion enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Commerce. The average income tax rate is 100%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Information Technology.
The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, organ donation is compulsory, major internet servers have acquired citizenship and are voting in national elections, and streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Centralis's national animal is the Snowy Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the credit.
