Louisiana is a state located in the Southern United States. According to the 2010 United States Census, Louisiana is the 25th most populous state with 4,533,479 inhabitants but the 33rd largest by land area spanning 43,203.90 square miles (111,897.6 km2) of land.[1] Louisiana is divided into 64 parishes, which are equivalent to counties and contains 304 incorporated municipalities consisting of cities, towns, and villages.[2] Louisiana's incorporated municipalities cover only 4% of the state's land mass but are home to 47.2% of its population.[1]

According to the 2015 Louisiana Laws Revised Statutes residents of any unincorporated area with a population greater than two hundred inhabitants may propose to incorporate as a city, town or village.[3] Municipal corporations are divided based on population into three classes: cities, towns, and villages. Those having five thousand inhabitants or more are classified as cities; those having less than five thousand but more than one thousand inhabitants are classified as towns; and those having one thousand or fewer inhabitants are classified as villages.[4] The governor may change the classification of the municipality if the board of aldermen request a change and a census shows that the population population of the has increased or decreased so as to take the municipality out of its present municipal class.[5] Municipalites are granted powers to perform any function required by local governments including the levy and collection of taxes and to assume indebtedness.[6]

The largest municipality by population in Louisiana is New Orleans with 343,829 residents, and the smallest municipality by population is Mound with 19 residents.[1] The largest municipality by land area is also New Orleans which spans 169.42 sq mi (438.8 km2), while Napoleonville is the smallest at 0.17 sq mi (0.44 km2).[1]
