Louisiana is definitely one of the most exotic states in the United States, as the influence of France can still be felt here today. The Pelican State (the name describes the coat of arms and flag animal of the state) has chosen the list of important characteristics as the state motto: Union, Justice and Confidence.

Water plays a very important role in the geography of the state. Louisiana lies at the mouth of the mighty Mississippi in the Gulf of Mexico. Because large parts of the country are swampy, it is also known as the Bayou State.

Louisiana is a relatively flat state, its average height is just 30 m, the highest point is 163 m on Driskill Mountain. The lowest point is 2 1/2 meters below sea level in New Orleans.

The state has three neighboring states: Texas in the west, Arkansas in the north and Mississippi in the east. The majority of the population comes from France or from Acadians who immigrated from today's Canada. About a third of its residents are African American, plus Hispanics and indigenous groups, as well as some smaller groups such as the Islenos (they live in communities such as Delacroix, Shell Beach and Hopedale) who once immigrated from the Canary Islands.

  • Area: 134,264 sq km
  • Population: 4,533,372
  • Abbreviation: LA

Exotic Cajun cuisine and the cradle of jazz

Although no language is defined as the official language, almost everyone speaks American English as a mother tongue (albeit with its own sound that does not necessarily resemble that of the other southern states), the proportion of French has dropped significantly in the last century and is now around 3%. In the meantime, even Spanish has become more common, but many place names, sights and buildings remind of the Francophone influence in the region. The culture with special music (New Orleans is considered the cradle of jazz, but of course you can also find country, blues and rock'n roll), festivals (carnival) and cults (voodoo from the Caribbean) and cuisine (Cajun cuisine) sometimes shows great differences from the rest of the USA.

The strongest church is the Catholic religion, followed by the Southern Baptist Convention and the Methodists. There is also a large number of free churches and in particular the gospel groups are legendary and not just part of religion, but also of culture.

Louisiana was named after the French king Louis XIV. From 1699 the area was colonized from France. In 1729 there was an uprising against the French by the Natchez Indians and some African Americans. The west later became Spanish, the east British. Napoleon I bought the colony back in 1800, but in 1803 the entire Louisiana area (with other states such as Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas) went to the United States (Louisiana Purchase). In 1812 Louisiana officially became its own state in the United States.

The largest cities are New Orleans, the capital Baton Rouge, Shreveport, Lafayette, Lake Charles and Kenner. Thanks to the two democratically liberal metropolises New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana is generally less conservative than the other southern states. In terms of both the right to vote and legal issues, the state is strongly guided by French guidelines, unlike the rest of the USA.

Agriculture plays a major role in the fertile soils of the state, where cotton, cucumber, sweet potatoes, tobacco and sugar cane are grown. Livestock farming with cattle and poultry is also worth mentioning. Louisiana is also known for oyster fishing and shrimp farming in the state's waters. Natural gas and oil are available, as is wood extraction in the forests, chemicals, aluminum industry and tourism.
