The Free Land of The Lucky but Unfortunate Wanderers is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Red An Actual Fox with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.855 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 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wandering economy, worth 400 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 large, well-organized, 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 140,452 Rais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The dartboard at the Wandering Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Red An Actual Fox's face, the new national anthem passes the Turing Test, government agents are triangulating the position of the rainbow's end for the purposes of gold acquisition, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, 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 14,448th in the world and 835th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 81.75 on the Human Development Index.
