The Holy Red Kaleidoscope of Luddinlande is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Master Indigo of the High Chorus with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.489 billion Luddineans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Green Meadows. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Luddinean economy, worth a remarkable 1,031 trillion red roses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 137,779 red roses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, Master Indigo of the High Chorus lives life on the open road - complete with groupies, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and the police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists. Crime is totally unknown. Luddinlande's national animal is the blue dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Luddinlande is ranked 180,086th in the world and 7,228th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -6.03 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
