The Cajun Ruled State of American Louisiana-Alabama is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Huey Longfish with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.267 billion Louisianans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Orleans. The average income tax rate is 50.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Louisianan economy, worth 321 trillion Louisiana Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 141,764 Louisiana Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
Roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, if they thought anyone would listen the older generation would likely say that nobody listens to them any more, politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. American Louisiana-Alabama's national animal is the Pelican, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.
