The Community of Ludense is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.365 billion Ludenseans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Here and There. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ludensean economy, worth 425 trillion Kakawas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 126,563 Kakawas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime is totally unknown. Ludense's national animal is the Chimpanzee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ludense is ranked 227,281st in the world and 174th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Armed, with 0.14 Weapons Per Person.
