The Holy Red Kaleidoscope of Luddinlande is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Master Indigo of the High Chorus with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, lack of airports, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.951 billion Luddineans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Green Meadows. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Luddinean economy, worth a remarkable 1,104 trillion red roses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 138,859 red roses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, and the well-to-do in the South Pacific are never on time for important appointments. Crime is totally unknown. Luddinlande's national animal is the blue dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Luddinlande is ranked 224,446th in the world and 8,446th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -24.37 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
