The Kingdom of Ludwigstein is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 808 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ludwigsteinian economy, worth 101 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 125,788 crowns, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Where there's a will there is usually a password manager, bike rage is all the rage, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and Ludwigstein City's iconic yellow taxis are nowhere to be seen. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ludwigstein's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ludwigstein is ranked 144,882nd in the world and 258th in Wintreath for Safest, scoring 11.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
