The Armada of Refuge

Population2.726 billion

Capital1st Grand Golden Fleet


The Oppression Machine of The Armada of Refuge is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Unknown with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, digital currency, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.726 billion Remnants 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 1st Grand Golden Fleet. The average income tax rate is 63.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Remnant economy, worth 417 trillion Retals 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 significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 153,140 Retals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, and court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Armada of Refuge's national animal is the NA, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is non-existent.

The Armada of Refuge is ranked 26,541st in the world and 25th in Eientei Gensokyo for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 5,695.64 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
