The Mighty People of Refugiado is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Great Khan with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 17.14 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 4.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Refugiadoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,775 trillion Calvins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 161,910 Calvins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Great Refugiadoan Melting Pot boils out ethnic heritage, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, becoming a missionary is a sure-fire route to martyrdom, and local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities. 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 2,077th in the world and 3rd in Portugal for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 483.89 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
