The Rhodesian Literature Club of Fantrum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Teddy Roosevelt with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 22.759 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 9,216 trillion Shiny bits a year, is 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 404,960 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 273,599th in the world and 44th in Pax Britannia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.28 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
