Louisiana, also known as the 'Bayou State', is the 25th most populated state in America. The southern state is bordered by Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi and the Gulf of Mexico. Unlike other states, Louisiana law is based on 'Napoleonic Code' and is one of the only states in the nation with Parishes instead of Counties (Alaska uses 'boroughs' instead of counties). Louisiana is one of the most diverse states in America featuring a multicultural blend of traditions from French, Haitian, Spanish, French Canadian, African and Native American cultures. In fact, that's cultural blend is where a lot of state's voodoo, Mardi Gras and Cajun traditions originated.
