The Nomadic Peoples of Ludewa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by bob with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 30.696 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 15,675 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 510,666 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls. 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 25,309th in the world and 458th in The East Pacific for Nudest, with 214.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
