The Corporate Republic of Ludenza is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cassan Luden with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.498 billion Ludenzans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aesis Dome. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ludenzan economy, worth 581 trillion Ludenzan Global Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 232,982 Ludenzan Global Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,189,810 per year while the poor average 25,114, a ratio of 47.4 to 1.

Drawing men's naughty bits isn't considered to be art, children get arrested for floating paper boats on lakes, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Aesis Dome, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ludenza's national animal is the Savannah Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ludenza is ranked 6,979th in the world and 1st in Scorched sands for Most Developed, scoring 90.03 on the Human Development Index.
