The Nomadic Peoples of Ludewa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by bob with a fair hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 30.255 billion Ludewans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Industry, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of bob. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ludewan economy, worth an astonishing 15,469 trillion thoughts 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. 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 a breathtaking 511,318 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, members of majority races are forced out of their homes to make way for Bigtopians, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and the 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ludewa's national animal is the animalcule, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Ludewa is ranked 208,157th in the world and 8,829th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -29.03 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
