The New Lunar Republic of Fantrum is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Luna Nightingale with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5.898 billion Fantnites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luna Prime. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, Fantrum's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown. Fantrum's national animal is the Hummie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Credit.

Fantrum is ranked 229th in British Isles and 117,886th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring -23 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
