The Paradoxical Summer Paradise of Nolaerie is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Uncle Earl with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 23.587 billion Louisianians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Orleans. The average income tax rate is 5%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, all tariffs have been abolished, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, and people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Nolaerie's national animal is the graceful mercia, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Bokononism, and its currency is the picayune.

Nolaerie is ranked 20th in Louisiana and 107,022nd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -2 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
