The Caesar of Socialist States of Ludistan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Julius Baloo with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, flagrant waste-dumping, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.501 billion Ludistanoes hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitale de Rome. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ludist economy, worth 744 trillion Romeweirs 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. 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 an amazing 297,574 Romeweirs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, billions of Romeweirs are spent to take high-quality photos of the Baloo Nebula, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation. Crime is totally unknown. Socialist States of Ludistan's national animal is the Baloo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Baloominati.

Socialist States of Ludistan is ranked 14,636th in the world and 1st in New Legion for Highest Food Quality, scoring 131.84 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
