The Red Land of The Lucky but Unfortunate Wanderers is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Red An Actual Fox with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 5.175 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 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wandering economy, worth 789 trillion Rais a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 152,543 Rais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Wandering companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, government officials across The Lucky but Unfortunate Wanderers are being "encouraged" to adopt Foxes to set an example for the populace, and the police have been reduced to using duct tape instead of handcuffs following further cutbacks. 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 199,230th in the world and 9,337th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -13.96 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
