The Fanciful Tales of Refuge Isle is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Arch-Admin Lucabaduka with a fair hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.563 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Admin Tower. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Refugi economy, worth 525 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 led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 147,497 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are forced to wear portable lie detectors at all times, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, and there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation. 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 170,376th in the world and 32nd in Refugia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.88 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
