The Royal Koopa Monarchy of The Ludwigan Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Ludwig von Koopa I with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.909 billion Koopas are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Bowser City. The average income tax rate is 27.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Koopa economy, worth 213 trillion Koopa Coins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 73,520 Koopa Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Rumor has it that Ludwig von Koopa I has won three lotteries in a row, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, schoolboys trained in chivalry are encouraged to duel other boys for a maiden's hand, and professional athletes juggle part-time jobs to avoid bankruptcy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ludwigan Empire's national animal is the Cheep Cheep Fish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Koopa Paganism.

The Ludwigan Empire is ranked 232,974th in the world and 87th in Blackstar for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 19.43 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
