The Discovery Expedition of Lewis and Clark is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Westwind with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, public floggings, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 21.792 billion Lewis and Clarkians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Welfare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacagawea. The average income tax rate is 52.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Lewis and Clarkian economy, worth 651 trillion Wooden Nickles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,901 Wooden Nickles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Toddler groups have taken over local libraries, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, and looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lewis and Clark's national animal is the Last Sasquatch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Crimson Order.

Lewis and Clark is ranked 194,527th in the world and 7th in The Beech Beach House for Rudest Citizens, with 27.09 insults per minute.
