The Nomadic Peoples of Ludewa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by bob with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, state-planned economy, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 34.565 billion Ludewans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of bob. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ludewan economy, worth an astonishing 17,898 trillion thoughts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 517,807 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, Bob's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, politicians are fired for opening subjective statements with "I believe", and sex changes are routinely performed at Ludewa's hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ludewa's national animal is the animalcule, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Ludewa is ranked 92nd in the world and 2nd in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 98.95 percentage of bribes refused.
