The Sovereign Knight's Order of The Spirit of Louisistan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Grand Usher of the golden rod with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.475 billion Louisistanists are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Holy Mountain. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.4%.

The strong Louisistanian economy, worth 79.6 trillion Louisistanian Grand Quarter Pounds a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,933 Louisistanian Grand Quarter Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Wolf Dung" has been declared a national treasure, deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, citizens often glare angrily at jet contrails, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Spirit of Louisistan's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Extremely Devout Catholicism.

The Spirit of Louisistan is ranked 154,541st in the world and 148th in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.17 Weapons Per Person.
