The Nomadic Peoples of Ludewa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by bob with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 28.34 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, socially-minded, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of bob. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ludewan economy, worth an astonishing 14,628 trillion thoughts a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 516,175 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, the nation excels at displacement, and parents are shocked to find out that having kids costs money. 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 151,169th in the world and 5,521st in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -69.43 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
