Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Paradoxical Winter Paradise of Nolaerie is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Uncle Earl with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 24.568 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Orleans. The average income tax rate is 41.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Nolaeriean economy, worth 150 trillion picayunes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 6,133 picayunes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, Nolaerie's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, and meat-eating is frowned upon. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nolaerie's national animal is the graceful mercia, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bokononism.

Nolaerie is ranked 7th in Louisiana and 29,020th in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
