The Motley Crew of Refugee Arks is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Émigré Prince with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.671 billion Refugees 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flagship. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Refugee economy, worth a remarkable 3,130 trillion spices a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 323,737 spices, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, a popular phrase is "eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we eat, drink and be merry some more", space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Refugee Arks's national animal is the Blue Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Albatross Veneration.

Refugee Arks is ranked 383rd in the world and 2nd in Philosophers for Healthiest Citizens, with 45.65 bananas ingested per day.
