Alexandria, officially the State of Alexandria (Insuian: Estado de Alexandria) is a state on the northeastern coast of mainland Insui. With a census-population of 30.6 million, Alexandria is the third most populous state in Insui. Qairo is the most populous city and the largest city by area in the state, as well as the state's capital.

Alexandria has a very diverse geography. The state is bordered by Santiago and Verona to the south and Venice to the west. The state also has a maritime border with Sanova to the east. The eastern part of the state is in the Ecinian Coastal Plain while northern Alexandria lies in the Odoneri Coastal Plain.

Alexandria had been inhabited by tribes of Arawak, Chibchan, and Jê-speaking Natives for several hundred years by the time the earliest Latinic people came to Alexandria. Coscivian colonists and Jesuit missionaries arrived southward from Odoneri regions for trade and proselytizing. In 1300, the region was visited by Pronius Álvares Sulpia sailing from Caphiria. The Caphirians built Castra Paulus in 1310 along the Berkley river, where the present-day capital of Qairo later developed. The Caphirians soon also settled Escalia and parts of the Berkley Valley, establishing the multicultural colony of New Venceia, a center of trade and immigration.

In the 21st century, Alexandria has emerged as a global node of creativity and entrepreneurship, social tolerance, and environmental sustainability. Alexandria's higher education network comprises approximately 200 colleges and universities, including Noares University, Alexandria State University, the University of Alexandria and Iberia University, which have been ranked among the top 35 in the nation and world.
