Louisiana, the long-hidden jewel of North America was long thought to be a land of vast deserts, covered with savages and hordes of wild bison. It was not until the 20th Century that Louisiana's oil, silver and agricultural riches became known to the world at large.
Under recent leadership Louisiana has increased its exports to the world at large and has created a great deal of trade for itself. Despite its importance economically, Louisiana remains a minor player in world affairs.
Louisiana is a minor player in world affairs, especially in matters of oil production, and so on. It also has an extensive agricultural and mining industry. Population centers tend to be along rail and river, as they are the means for getting goods to market. Outside of the rail corridors and rivers, Louisiana is sparsely populated, as most of the land is left to farming.
Originally part of the French Colonial Empire, Louisiana was sparsely populated at the time it was sold to Spain. It remained part of Spanish America, and achieved independence for itself in 1841 with the Treaty of New Orleans, granting it formal autonomy.
