The Middle District of Louisiana is a nine parish region that includes the following parishes: Ascension, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Livingston, Pointe Coupee, St. Helena, West Baton Rouge and West Feliciana. The district has a population approaching 1 million. The U.S. Attorney's Office is located in Baton Rouge on the banks of the Mississippi River in South Central Louisiana. The remainder of the district is comprised of large rural areas and numerous small, but growing, cities.

There is a rich diversity of cultures in Louisiana. The population includes the original native American inhabitants, plus the descendants of a variety of settlers, among whom were the French, Spanish, English, German, Acadians, West Indians, Africans, Irish, Italians and many others.

The state’s principal agricultural products include seafood (it is the biggest producer of crawfish in the world), cotton, soybeans, cattle, sugarcane, poultry and eggs, dairy products, and rice.

The Port of South Louisiana, located on the Mississippi between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, is the largest volume shipping port in the Western Hemisphere and 4th largest in the world. It is the largest bulk cargo port in the world.
