The Online Sanctuary of Refuge Isle is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Arch-Administrator McGrath with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.091 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Admin Tower. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Refugi economy, worth 269 trillion planets a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,057 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and anybody who is high on pot can't sit on a city council (Refuge Isle has found 8 easter eggs). Crime is totally unknown. 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 167,939th in the world and 69th in Refugia for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -11.42 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
