I'm confused by the history section. By the early 18th century, surely there would no longer be claims by Louisianne? And what does it mean to say that it was a "state"? Was the territory a sort of no-man's-land, and English colonists established a short-lived nation that actually joined the NAL, sort of like Texas *here*? Nik 21:53, 23 March 2006 (PST)

The war mentioned surely must be the 1755 War. BoArthur

Government

Oh, I'm always pleased to see something interesting in the provincial governmental designs! But I have two questions:

  • Although the system may not recognize political parties exist, they most certainly do. How is that reconciled?
  • Why "Premier Minister" and not "Prime Minister" or "Premier"? Or "First Minister" for that matter (which is what PM and Premier mean)?

And btw, thanks so much for contributing! Zahir 11:44, 6 November 2006 (PST)

Maybe they fancy themselves a Communist Semi-Autonomous entity? (AND NO, that's not serious, just like Communist Buddhists of Russia wasn't serious.) BoArthur 12:23, 6 November 2006 (PST)
Where comes the Communist link? The Premier Minister thingy is just because it's near Louisianne; Premier is French for First, isn't it, and First President + Prime Minister -> Premier Minister. As for the "no political parties" idea I scabbed that off Nebraska *here*, I don't know how it works there. I have two ways of taking this; either a) politicians align themselves with political parties but are not officially recognised or b) politicians are best known according their ideology e.g. Socialist, Conservative, Liberal, etc etc etc. --Quentin 12:50, 6 November 2006 (PST)
Premier from the Premier of Russia. That's how they were called in American English. That's why. And that's why I'm COMPLETELY joking and you can disregard my comment. BoArthur

I would suggest--and this is no more than a suggestion--another name for the Premier Minister than Jacques Carter simply because of the popular fictional figure of Jacques Cartier (unless of course you want to use this coincidence in some way). Zahir 05:52, 10 November 2006 (PST)

I see, that's probably a good idea. --Quentin

Jeremy Booth?

Just a thought--perhaps he was related to Drew Wilkes-Booth? Zahir 09:05, 16 November 2006 (PST)

Probably. And all of those Louisiannans are probably related too. Thanks for sorting out Peoria. --Quentin 12:15, 1 February 2007 (PST)

Capital

I doubt that it's Peoria, since now we know Peoria was spent 130 years as a condominium between Illinoise and Ouisconsin... although, having the capital in a condominium wouldn't be unprecedented. I think Gadangmeland works that way. In the same post that Padraic named Ouisconsin's capital St. Francis, he also designated "Mound City" as the capital of Illinoise. That would most likely be in the Cahokia Mounds region, the site of some of the earliest European settlement in the region and commuting distance from Lyons-sur-Mizouri.

I think you may mean St. Louis--Lyons-sur-Mizouri correlates to Kansas City, *here*. BoArthur 16:59, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I did. Louisiannais geography D-. Benkarnell
No D-, just a 12/20. 10/20 means that you failed, and you'd have to take the test again. BoArthur 19:04, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
