The Borderlands of Refaw is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.284 billion Refawians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sparta Command. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The powerhouse Refawian economy, worth a remarkable 1,410 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is 98,723 Rubles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 887,717 per year while the poor average 1,375, a ratio of 645 to 1.

The government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails, abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Refaw's national animal is the Screecher, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Refaw is ranked 104,904th in the world and 3rd in Subvinse for Most Authoritarian, with 663.38 milliStalins.
