The Nomadic Peoples of Ludewa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by bob with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 32.104 billion Ludewans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, although Administration, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, 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 2.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ludewan economy, worth an astonishing 14,238 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 a large, well-organized, 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 an amazing 443,504 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-thought mansions, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Bob" t-shirts. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, 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 238,751st in the world and 8,375th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -29.96 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
