The Glowing Arch of The Refuge Travel Gate is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lieutenant Ember with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.308 billion transit staff members hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Travel Nexus. The average income tax rate is 56.5%.

The Refugi outpost economy, worth 64.0 trillion planets a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming. Average income is 48,934 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, bins outnumber trees in city parks, graffiti graces every city's streets, and the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate. The Refuge Travel Gate's national animal is the simplebot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zyqxuwy.

The Refuge Travel Gate is ranked 27,094th in the world and 9th in Refugia for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 75.13 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
