The Nomadic Peoples of Ludewa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by bob with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 30.721 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, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Industry, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of bob. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ludewan economy, worth an astonishing 15,630 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 508,781 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bob's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. 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 223,324th in the world and 9,021st in The East Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -33.36 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
