The Democratic Space Empire of Socialist States of Ludistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Julia Lombardo with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.093 billion Ludistanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitale de Ludistano. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ludist economy, worth 583 trillion Bitweirs 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 an amazing 278,899 Bitweirs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, it's customary to greet the monarch with fist bumps, political detractors refer to Julia Lombardo as 'that Bigtopian puppet', and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. Crime is totally unknown. Socialist States of Ludistan's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tzuism.

Socialist States of Ludistan is ranked 244,157th in the world and 61st in Callista for Best Weather, with -382 Meters Of Sunlight.
