The Seven's Respite of True Refuge is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Seven with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 11.237 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 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Refugean economy, worth a remarkable 1,186 trillion Singing Platniums a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,593 Singing Platniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for True Refuge, metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach, and road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans. 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 174,178th in the world and 27th in PolCompBall Discord for Rudest Citizens, with 30.29 Insults Per Minute.
