The Red Land of The Lucky but Unfortunate Wanderers is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Red An Actual Fox with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 4.881 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 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wandering economy, worth 747 trillion Rais a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 153,091 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 218,792nd in the world and 13,833rd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -84.9 on the Hayek Index.
