In fact, of course, not even countable but finite. But this is all 
beside the point for the important thing is not what these things *are* 
but what Mathematica interpret them as.
Even finite state automata can simulate distributions defined on real 
intervals where "essentially everything" consists of non-comptable 
reals.
