The United States of Lexingtan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Christian Loumion with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.498 billion Lexingtans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Preston. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lexingtanian economy, worth 233 trillion Lexingtan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 155,838 Lexingtan Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, the well-to-do in Auralia are never on time for important appointments, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. Crime is well under control. Lexingtan's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lexingtan is ranked 20,076th in the world and 6th in Auralia for Most Cultured, scoring 84 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
