Insuian (insuiana or, in full, língua insuiana; alternatively alexandriano) is a Romance language originating in northern Ixnay. It is the sole official language of Insui, Ceylonia, Galicia, and Porlos. It is spoken by virtually all of their combined 426 million inhabitants and spoken widely across the Insuian diaspora.

Insuian is part of the Romance group that evolved from several dialects of Vulgar Latin in the Latinic Empire, and has kept some Native phonology and lexicon. With approximately 426 million native speakers and 505 million total speakers, it is usually listed as the seventh most natively spoken language in the world, the most spoken Romance language in the world in terms of both native and total speakers, and a major language of the tropics. It is also the most spoken language in Northern Ixnay and the third-most spoken in Ixnay after Latin and Corummese.

Regional varieties of Insuian, while remaining mutually intelligible, may diverge from each other in matters such as vowel pronunciation and speech intonation.
