The Baroque Juggernaut Fleet of Refugee Arks is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Old Skipper Samuelsøn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.494 billion Mariners 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 medium-sized, liberal, 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 average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Marine economy, worth 748 trillion spices a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 214,174 spices, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, there's more vermin than ever on the metro, and the nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Refugee Arks's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Albatross Sacrifice.

Refugee Arks is ranked 10,181st in the world and 7th in The Horde for Most Politically Free, scoring 83 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
