The Democratic Space Empire of Socialist States of Ludistan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Augustus Lombardo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.631 billion Ludistanians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitale de Ludistano. The average income tax rate is 74.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ludist economy, worth 386 trillion Bitweirs 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 Uranium Mining. 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 236,817 Bitweirs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Ludistanians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, the death penalty has been reintroduced, foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, and the native owl population is in permanent hibernation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Socialist States of Ludistan's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tzuism.

Socialist States of Ludistan is ranked 3,984th in the world and 1st in The Legionary for Highest Average Incomes, with 236,817.56 Standard Monetary Units.
