The Rhodesian Literature Club of Fantrum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Teddy Roosevelt with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 19.853 billion Angry Boyos in Short Shorts hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salisbury. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Fantrumian economy, worth a remarkable 8,021 trillion Shiny bits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 404,064 Shiny bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime is totally unknown. Fantrum's national animal is the Floppy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fantrum is ranked 1,082nd in the world and 3rd in Pax Britannia for Most Developed, scoring 98.27 on the Human Development Index.
