The Fanciful Tales of Refuge Isle is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Arch-Administrator Luca with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.725 billion Refugi hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Admin Tower. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Refugi economy, worth 879 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 186,150 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, and children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet. 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 9th in the world and 1st in Refugia for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 89,372.78 Bank.
