The Federation of Ludani is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its closed borders, ban on automobiles, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 437 million Ludanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of FairHaven. The average income tax rate is 16.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ludanian economy, worth 38.3 trillion Righjestags a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,598 Righjestags, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, the police have been reduced to using duct tape instead of handcuffs following further cutbacks, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, and companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ludani's national animal is the Federal Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ludani is ranked 77,421st in the world and 1st in Mercenary Squad for Most Developed, scoring 52.8 on the Human Development Index.
