Louisiana is located in the Southern region of the United States and on April 30, 1812 became the eighteenth state to enter into the union. Louisiana was named after the French king Louis XIV. The current governor of Louisiana is Bobby Jindal, a Republican.

The Brown Pelican, the Louisiana state bird, was taken off the endangered species list only one year before President Obama approved BP's oil lease which created the Gulf of Mexico oil spill disaster.

The capital of the state is Baton Rouge, and its largest city is New Orleans.
