The United States of Xerographica is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 16.055 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 719 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 44,845 aeranthos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 193,558 per year while the poor average 6,618, 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 96,326th in the world and 3,460th in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,022.52 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
