The Kingdoms of Ludania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Geraint IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 16.066 billion Ludanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny, corrupt, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glanbrenin. The average income tax rate is 11.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ludanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,626 trillion Corons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 287,997 Corons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis, and most towns have their King Geraint IV High School located on King Geraint IV Street. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ludania's national animal is the Red Kite, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Ludania is ranked 164,868th in the world and 52nd in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Most Devout, with 2.44 Prayers Per Hour.
