The Federation of La Nouvelle-Orleans is a very large, efficient nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 140 million La Nouvelle-Orleansians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The all-consuming La Nouvelle-Orleansian economy, worth 13.7 trillion New Orleanian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is 97,909 New Orleanian Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 390,664 per year while the poor average 16,507, a ratio of 23.7 to 1.

The entire entry for La Nouvelle-Orleans in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', war vets look after war animals, it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, and school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. La Nouvelle-Orleans's national animal is the American Alligator, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

La Nouvelle-Orleans is ranked 25,473rd in the world and 515th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 23.67 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
