Louisiana is different than the rest of the United States because of Napoleon Bonaparte and our French tradition. Louisiana law is different because in 1821 it was a very forward-thinking system of justice. But don’t make the mistake of thinking that laws based on the Code Napoleon are outdated. When given a chance to form a system of laws, many new governments have decided to base their system on the very same Napoleonic Code that Louisiana adopted. That was the case with Quebec, Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Spain, Portugal, Greece, and many Latin American countries.
New Military Traditions – Each of the Greek States has a unique top-tier military tradition: Athenian fleets may be honoured as Children of the Aegaean, improving the ramming ability of their ships whilst allowing them to secure more income when raiding; Spartan armies may be remembered as Peers of Leonidas, improving their melee defense capabilities and reducing their upkeep; the armies of Epirus may be feared as Hounds of Molossus, granting them greater charge bonuses whilst allowing them to keep public order problems in check.
