The Commonwealth of Reftaria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Luke Carlton with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.694 billion Reftarians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jacobs. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Reftarian economy, worth 767 trillion reftens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,568 reftens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, the government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, and only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare. Crime is totally unknown. Reftaria's national animal is the osprey, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Reftaria is ranked 1,816th in the world and 48th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 26,587.05 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
