The Nomadic Peoples of Ludewa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by bob with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, vat-grown people, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 28.678 billion Ludewans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, 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 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ludewan economy, worth an astonishing 14,472 trillion thoughts a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 504,647 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, and oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds. 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 84th in the world and 3rd in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 68,224.37 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
