“We cope with being on NationStates in different ways”
|Category: Left-wing Utopia|
Regional Influence: Sprat
Location: The East Pacific
|Capital||the Admin Tower|
The Fanciful Tales of Refuge Isle is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Arch-Admin Lucabaduka with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.54 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 521 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 significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 147,324 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Refugi weed picker are way up, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, and thalassophobia and heliophobia are on the rise. 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.
