The Kingdom of Louisiana

The Kingdom of Louisiana is one of three successor kingdoms to the Mississippi Empire and is generally considered to be the spiritual and political successor to the Empire. Consisting of the original lands of the Empire, it is by far the most stable of the three kingdoms.

The crown on the flag of Louisiana represents the throne’s official status as successor throne to the Mississippi Empire.

History

Louisiana’s history since the Commonwealth War is rather uninteresting. As Louisiana contains territory that was entirely a part of the Mississippi Empire for generations, there is no ongoing resistance to the king and his rule.

Government

The King of Louisiana rules his kingdom much as the Emperor of the Mississippi rules his; with complete discretion and little oversight from the College of Lords.

Military

The military of Louisiana is a direct successor to the military of the Mississippi Empire, including the traditions and names. Some of the northern regiments and commands were traded off to the Kingdom of Ohio, and several surviving capital ships were traded off to the Commonwealth, but much of the old structure remains intact.

Economy

Louisiana benefits from both its position at the mouth of the river, dominating trade, and from the efforts of its nobility to diversify and build up its industry. Louisiana’s economy is well balanced, leading to one of the largest economies in the hemisphere.
