The Republic of Lexicanus Gravitas is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Adeptus Mechanicus with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.093 billion Lexicanus Gravitasians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lexicaneum. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lexicanus Gravitasian economy, worth a remarkable 2,541 trillion Chits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 229,084 Chits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, in pet stores nationwide Gyrfalcons are growing in popularity, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lexicanus Gravitas's national animal is the Gyrfalcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lexicanus Gravitas is ranked 4,207th in the world and 109th in the West Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 94.57 on the Human Development Index.
