The Holy Red Kaleidoscope of Luddinlande is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Master Indigo of the High Chorus with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.479 billion Luddineans 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Green Meadows. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Luddinean economy, worth a remarkable 1,031 trillion red roses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 137,951 red roses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint, the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, and Master Indigo of the High Chorus lives life on the open road - complete with groupies. Crime is totally unknown. Luddinlande's national animal is the blue dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Luddinlande is ranked 205,307th in the world and 8,274th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -20.54 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
