The Red Land of The Lucky but Unfortunate Wanderers is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Red An Actual Fox with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 5.54 billion Wanderers enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of An Taistealaí faoi Thalamh. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wandering economy, worth 838 trillion Rais a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 151,354 Rais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Being Red An Actual Fox has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, and grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Lucky but Unfortunate Wanderers's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church Of The Holy Peanut.

The Lucky but Unfortunate Wanderers is ranked 38,128th in the world and 1,283rd in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 197 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
