The Kingdom of Ludwigstein is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its triple-decker prams, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 284 million Ludwigsteinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 19.0%.

The all-consuming Ludwigsteinian economy, worth 32.4 trillion crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 113,978 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, people who have lived their entire lives in Ludwigstein are shocked to discover that they are not citizens, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ludwigstein's national animal is the eagle.

Ludwigstein is ranked 47,927th in the world and 45th in Wintreath for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,821.24 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
