Louisiana is a diverse state. Socially, culturally, agriculturally, and in numerous other ways Louisiana encompasses the extremes of the spectrum. For example, Louisiana citizens vary from those with a predominantly Catholic French heritage in south Louisiana to the protestant Anglo-Saxon inhabitants of north Louisiana; their cities vary from the world famous metropolis of New Orleans to the smallest of rural villages; their economic means vary from trappers and fisherman who literally "live off the land" to people who have become suddenly and vastly weathly by owning land underlaid with oil or natural gas deposits.
