The United States of Xerographica is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.35 billion Xerographicans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.3%.

The powerhouse Xerographican economy, worth 559 trillion aeranthos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 45,327 aeranthos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 195,640 per year while the poor average 6,690, a ratio of 29.2 to 1.

Prison visits increase substantially during election years, abortions are routinely performed in Xerographica's hospitals, half of Xerographica's doctors can't speak the language, and rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Xerographica's national animal is the chameleon.

Xerographica is ranked 35,224th in the world and 1,525th in Osiris for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 52.16 Whatever.
