The Fanciful Tales of Refuge Isle is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Arch-Administrator Luca with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.442 billion Refugi are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Admin Tower. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Refugi economy, worth a remarkable 1,835 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 246,639 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, foreign despots proudly bandstand on Refugi airwaves, and pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Refuge Isle's national animal is the SimpleBot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Zyqxuwy.

Refuge Isle is ranked 909th in the world and 2nd in Refugia for Smartest Citizens, with 236.96 quips per hour.
