The Nomadic Peoples of Ludewa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by bob with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 30.416 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, socially-minded, 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 89.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ludewan economy, worth an astonishing 16,132 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 530,393 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, Bob is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and respect is something that is typically forced rather than earned in Ludewa. 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 8,756th in the world and 222nd in The East Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 89.31 Effective Tax Rate.
