The Dictatorship of Socialist States of Ludistan is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 438 million Ludistanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Palermo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.0%.

The all-consuming Ludistanian economy, worth 54.6 trillion Red Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 124,558 Red Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

The education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist States of Ludistan's national animal is the grey wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Socialist States of Ludistan is ranked 127,809th in the world and 145th in First World Order for Most Pro-Market, scoring 38.56 on the Rand Index.
