The Nomadic Peoples of Ludewa is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by bob with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, soft-spoken computers, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 30.216 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 medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of bob. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ludewan economy, worth an astonishing 15,204 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 503,203 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Ludewans. 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 208,687th in the world and 8,993rd in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 3.31 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
