As the colony didn't bring much profit to France, it was basically left to its own means, until the French Revolution, when the remaining princes of the Bourbon dynasty fled here in 1791. Unlike the Frenchmen, Cajuns liked the monarchy as long as the ruler didn't have too much to say. Charles X agreed on the constitutional, elective monarchy, and the Constitution de Louisiane was signed and ratified in 1800. During the Congress of Vienna the Ambassador of Louisiana officially declared independence from France, as his compatriots unilaterally wanted to keep the status quo agreed upon with the Bourbons.
Currently the Kingdom of Louisiana is an elective monarchy ruled by the Charles XVIII. Its economy is firmly rooted in agriculture (with France and Atlantis as main importers of exotic foods) and tourism (it is a favourite international resort destination for the Atlantans).
