The Holiday Paradise of Port Louis is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Himself with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The hard-nosed population of 11.317 billion Port Louisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Public Transport, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Louis. The average income tax rate is 75%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Uranium Mining.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, it's always rabbit season, and stray cats threaten the fledgling avian-based internet. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Port Louis's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the mauritian rupee.

Port Louis is ranked 5th in pacific and 118,164th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -47 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
