The Online Sanctuary of Refuge Isle is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Arch-Administrator McGrath with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 1.986 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 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Refugi economy, worth 249 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 125,605 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, and foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Refuge Isle will pay them to stop. 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 1,512th in the world and 1st in Refugia for Most Pacifist, with 185.67 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
