The Seven's Respite of True Refuge is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Seven with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 8.711 billion Refugeans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Shining City. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Refugean economy, worth 943 trillion Singing Platniums a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,361 Singing Platniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. True Refuge's national animal is the Essencebane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Winged Eye.

True Refuge is ranked 31,925th in the world and 1,314th in Osiris for Nudest, with 186.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
