Lower Louisiana

Population23.467 billion


The Queen's State of Lower Louisiana is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 23.467 billion Lower Louisianans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Lower Louisianan economy, worth 647 trillion betales 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, quite specialized black market in Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. 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 27,577 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The eagle is a protected species, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Lower Louisiana's radio stations, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lower Louisiana's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lower Louisiana is ranked 66,124th in the world and 4th in Republic of Congo for Largest Governments, scoring 16.19 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
