The Zombie Cure Force of Refuge Isle is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Arch-Admin Lucabaduka with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.985 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — 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 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Refugi economy, worth 649 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 Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 162,950 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, jollity-related fatalities are on the increase, movie producers send film critics wads of cash in their morning newspapers in anticipation of gushing praise, and large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children. 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 cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Zyqxuwy.

Refuge Isle is ranked 239th in the world and 2nd in Refugia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 98.89 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
