It seems like a redirect would be better than an include here.
Perhaps something like...

    (:pagelist group=Main order=random count=1 fmt=#redirect list=normal wrap=inline:)

    (:redirect {=$FullName}:)

This gets close, except it puts the "Redirected from ..." line at the
top of the page.  One could suppress that also by setting in local/config.php:

    $PageRedirectFmt = '';
