The Sacred Fire of Centre Street is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ban on automobiles, and enforced nudity. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 30.464 billion Centre Streetians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bedford. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The enormous but sluggish Centre Streetian economy, worth a remarkable 2,234 trillion nickels a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,337 nickels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", the weather in Bedford is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', and hordes of tourists are ruining the environment. Crime is totally unknown. Centre Street's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Centre Street is ranked 224,892nd in the world and 33rd in The Maritimes for Most Primitive, scoring -224.55 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
