The Holy Red Kaleidoscope of Luddinlande is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Master Indigo of the High Chorus with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.539 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Green Meadows. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Luddinean economy, worth 664 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 119,903 red roses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a growing belief that mothers love their children more than fathers, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees his shadow. Crime is totally unknown. Luddinlande's national animal is the blue dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Luddinlande is ranked 21,841st in the world and 355th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 664 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
