The First Incarnation of Refugian Empire is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Arch-Administrator Dueck with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, prohibition of alcohol, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 5.065 billion Refugi enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Admin Tower. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming CalRuffian economy, worth 464 trillion planets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is 91,695 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, a government program is underway to revitalize Refugian Empire's beaches, and increasing numbers of children in Refugian Empire have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Refugian Empire's national animal is the simplebot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Refugian Empire is ranked 66,329th in the world and 83rd in Refugia for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 414.76 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
