Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Mighty People of Refugiado is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Great Khan with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 16.032 billion Fugeeses have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raccoon City. The average income tax rate is 3.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Refugiadoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,471 trillion Calvins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 154,145 Calvins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward. Crime is totally unknown. Refugiado's national animal is the Hobbes, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Great Khan's Love.

Refugiado is ranked 115,569th in the world and 77th in Portugal for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.26 Crimes Per Hour.
