The Holy Red Kaleidoscope of Luddinlande is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Master Indigo of the High Chorus with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.904 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, liberal 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 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Luddinean economy, worth a remarkable 1,313 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,493 red roses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arbitration is mightier than the sword, they say that Luddineans made a dessert and called it peace, the government is frequently held to ransom by the increasing demands of bloodthirsty pirates, and Master Indigo of the High Chorus wears a chewed-up rubber chicken suit to meet foreign delegates. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Luddinlande's national animal is the blue dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Luddinlande is ranked 6,022nd in the world and 140th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 4,146.53 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
