The Incorporated States of Air Louisistan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Board of Directors with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, zero percent divorce rate, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.733 billion Air Louisistanians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Louisistan International Airport. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Air Louisistanian economy, worth 395 trillion Frequent Flyer Miles a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Tourism, Retail, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,968 Frequent Flyer Miles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 329,734 per year while the poor average 26,184, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

90% of active duty ALAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, boot polish is the favourite lip gloss of entry-level corporate workers, government solves problems by tossing money at the nearest geek, and there is a 'turn around' sign at every border entrance. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Air Louisistan's national animal is the swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violetism.

Air Louisistan is ranked 35,376th in the world and 1st in Trinity College for Most Developed, scoring 70.64 on the Human Development Index.
