The Nomadic Peoples of Ludewa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by bob with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, strictly enforced bedtime, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 32.074 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 is primarily concerned with Education, although Administration, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, 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 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ludewan economy, worth an astonishing 14,276 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 445,102 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens", the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, much of Ludewa's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. 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 239,429th in the world and 8,273rd in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 1.28 Obesity Rate.
