The Fanciful Tales of Refuge Isle is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Arch-Administrator Luca with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.05 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Administration 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 984 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 impressive 194,860 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, the horniness of the great-horned SimpleBot is considered a national priority, and hammer and sickle-wielding space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on. 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 7,046th in the world and 9th in Refugia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13,980.45 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
