The Nomadic Peoples of Ludewa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by bob with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 33.592 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 relatively small, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of bob. The average income tax rate is 63.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ludewan economy, worth an astonishing 18,271 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 543,929 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Robotic spouses prove to be just as imperfect as flesh and blood ones, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, the nation's museums are real penny-pinchers, and citizens select which government department gets their income tax thoughts each year. 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 250,374th in the world and 11,099th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 0.97 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
