The Paradoxical Autumn Paradise of Nolaerie is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Uncle Earl with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 23.976 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 9%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

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 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 3rd in Louisiana and 11,213th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 179 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
