The Republic of Lexicanus Gravitas is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Adeptus Mechanicus with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.229 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 2,573 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 229,158 Chits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs. 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 127,627th in the world and 3,365th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 38.89 on the Rand Index.
