The Free Land of The Lucky but Unfortunate Wanderers is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Red An Actual Fox with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 3.525 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, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of An Taistealaí Faoi Thalamh. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wandering economy, worth 495 trillion Rais a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 140,625 Rais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries, lobotomised jaywalkers can barely ambulate let alone repeat their offences, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and the nation takes the world's poor and tired and the huddled Masses yearning to breathe free. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Lucky but Unfortunate Wanderers's national animal is the Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church Of The Holy Peanut.

The Lucky but Unfortunate Wanderers is ranked 7,921st in the world and 260th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 87.69 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
