The Dawn Fleet of Excidium Planetis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Radiant Dawn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 13.436 billion Excidians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Homeship Reckoner. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Excidian economy, worth a remarkable 2,680 trillion ϵρ Excidian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 199,495 ϵρ Excidian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', Radiant Dawn's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars, and all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers. Crime is totally unknown. Excidium Planetis's national animal is the Robotic Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Excidium Planetis is ranked 10,291st in the world and 6th in The Galactics Union for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 24,966.08 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
