The Vast Plains of Big Front Yard is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, cheerful population of 10.62 billion Wanderers 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haven. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Wanderer economy, worth a remarkable 1,650 trillion gears a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 155,428 gears, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Big Front Yard after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Big Front Yard's national animal is the badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Taoism.

Big Front Yard is ranked 11,382nd in the world and 188th in 10000 Islands for Highest Poor Incomes, with 97,003.19 Standard Monetary Units.
