The Nomadic Peoples of Ludewa is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by bob with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 31.417 billion Ludewans 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 relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Administration, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of bob. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ludewan economy, worth an astonishing 13,357 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 a large, well-organized, 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 an amazing 425,155 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, citizens are expected to be armed at all times, and teenagers are severely punished for being out too late. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, 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 192,029th in the world and 7,549th in The East Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 328.09 milliStalins.
