The Confederacy of Louisistan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Chancellor Florian Zimba with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.549 billion Louisistanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meersburg. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Louisistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,325 trillion Louisistanian Grand Quarter Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 105,657 Louisistanian Grand Quarter Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, foreign leaders who don't applaud Lord Chancellor Florian Zimba's speeches are regarded as enemies of Louisistan, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, and holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Louisistan's national animal is the Kiwi, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Louisistan is ranked 96,666th in the world and 630th in 10000 Islands for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 19.3 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
