The Crimson Kingdom of Lewis and Clark is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Westwind with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 19.784 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, with Law & Order and Welfare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacagawea. The average income tax rate is 51.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Lewis and Clarkian economy, worth 599 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 30,285 Wooden Nickles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cheering flag-waving citizens don't like to think too hard about politics, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, war vets look after war animals, and toddler groups have taken over local libraries. 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 187,081st in the world and 32nd in The Watchtower for Most Politically Free, scoring 22.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
