“In order to form a more perfect Union…” Union is one of the Words in the State Motto and on the current flag of the State. In the long super-series (with several numbered subserieses) I have outlined a proposed revolutionary change for America. this “completion” of the American Revolution would involve a shift to a complex mixed government royalist empire. This would make (in this particular model) the Basileus Arkadios Emperor of the United States and the Federal American Empire of the United States. However, in this post I am proposing what I believe would be the best system for the Louisana aspect of the reconstitutionalized United States of America. I have described the system of this as one that would result in dividing the overall map of trhe United States into three kinds of Constitutional jurisdictions. These would be States (fifty-one with the addition of Puerto Rico), Territories and Possessions. If you are interested you can check through these posts for the the list of what these Jurisdictions would be. The US Senate would represent only the States but the Territoties and Possessions would have tribunes there with limited but real power and privileges. The military would play a new role with bases represented in the House and in the Electoral College untill a stalemate. Then there would be a Direct Imperial Government. In all of this there would also be thirteen Major Compacts between Constitutional Jurisdictions and these would exist on Compact Zones that would be part of the Direct Imperial Government Lands. There would also be a whole system of Royalty and Nobility described elsewhere in these posts. The whole plan is extremely unlikely opf course. However, it would depend quite a bit on Louisiana which would be key to it all. So I am writing this post to set up the basic parameters for this new regime as it affects Louisiana. I am not discussing the many laws and several constitutions or the physical plants. I am doing the equivalent of a minimalist drawing. This the basic royal and royalist sine qua non of the proposed regime.
It would involve quite a large number of titles with the word Louisiana in them belonging to one man with flowing titles extended to all family and relevant nobles. However, it is the only system that would really be appropriate. Oddly enough, one title would do to govern three hundred millions are more and set up all the regimes necessary but I think that seven titles would be necessary to fill the intermediate role of the King of Louisiana. I will start by listing the titles themselves which would be added to the Basileus Arkadios:
1. Rois de l’Etat – Royaume de la Louisiane/King of the State Kingdom of Louisiana
2. Rois de La Concorde de La Louisiane/ King of the Louisiana Compact
3.Haute Rois de La Concorde de La Grand Louisiane/ High King of the Louisiana Purchase Compact
4. Sieur Haute Rois sur Territoire des Creole de Couleur de La Louisiane/ Lord High King over the Creaoles of Color Territory of Louisiana
5.Sieur Haute Prince sur la Posession de la Gens Negre de La Louisiane/ Lord High Prince over the Negro and African American Possession of Louisiana
6. Seigneur Prince Chef des Chefs de La Fraternite des Nations Ouest-Louisiane/ Lord Prince Chief of Chiefs of the Fraternity of West Louisiana Nations
7. Seigneur Prince Chef des Chefs de La Fraternite des Nations Est-Louisiane/ Lord Prince Chief of Chiefs of the Fraternity of East Louisiana Nations
The main Bouletherion and the facilities of the βασιλικό οίκο of the Acadian regime would be well set up and that would require lots of working out on paper and in legal complexity this note does not deal with redundant descriptions of the basic working of the new regime nor does it deal with these Acadian issues per se. This deals with a few key people and players in the transformation of Louisiana as such.

The next 90 of the 210 Louisiana electors come from one Elector for Life elected be each Parish and Petit Paroisse after reconstitution with the remainder of the hundred filled by officer on the Combined and Joint Military Rolls in descending order of Rank starting with the highest.
Then 72 will be chosen at random but in this way:
24 from the state, 12 from the Territory, 8 from the Possession, 8 from both Fraternities of Nations and 2o from the Compact of the Louisiana Purchase excluding all previously represented groups.
That leaves eight to be chosen from the rolls of the Louisiana Royal House by the Executive and Judicial Board of the Compact of the Louisiana Purchase. This will be a very unique system and a bit ungainly. But it will be true to our realites.
The Final Fifteen will be made up of Special Second Electors for Life from each of the States in the Louisiana Purchase Compact except for the State of Louisiana and any left over in the fifteen to be elected by the Territory and Possession delegates of the Compact as a whole.
