The Republic of Lexicanus Gravitas is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Adeptus Mechanicus with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.106 billion Lexicanus Gravitasians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lexicaneum. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lexicanus Gravitasian economy, worth a remarkable 2,011 trillion Chits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 220,919 Chits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and school football matches are usually five-a-side. 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 5,955th in the world and 100th in the West Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 2,011 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
