The Fanciful Tales of Refuge Isle is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Arch-Administrator Luca with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, lack of airports, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.425 billion Refugi 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, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Admin Tower. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Refugi economy, worth a remarkable 1,112 trillion planets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 205,153 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's stance on marriage is 'Let Refugi marry themselves', vanity is the constant enemy of dignity, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', and newspapers are celebrating Arch-Administrator Luca saving over a million cats from trees. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Refuge Isle's national animal is the SimpleBot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Zyqxuwy.

Refuge Isle is ranked 740th in the world and 3rd in Refugia for Most Developed, scoring 98.59 on the Human Development Index.
