Lycon v. Essexia was a court case in Essexia regarding the nation's endorsement of a British grocery store. It ended in total dismissal due to a lack of information and the incorrect form being submitted for a case.


On 24 December 2020, Matthew S informed the campaign for Jack Dean for Chair of the Grand Unified Micronational that Emperor Terry bought a DeanMontan skirt. Jayden Lycon later commented that Terry most likely shops at Co-op Food, a supermarket chain known for being expensive. Dean confirmed that Terry shops at Co-op, but when Lycon asked Terry to confirm it, he stated that he shops at Aldi. Lycon stated that he would ask the Supreme Court of Essexia about their supermarket preferences, but was later changed to confirm the supermarket chain that the Commonwealth endorses. The writ of certiorari was submitted later that day.

On 18 January 2021, the case was rejected for failure of proper formatting and the lack of information.

This is the first case attempted to be brought in Essexian courts, and it is not with pleasure that I reject it. I cannot, however, accept it in my capacity as Supreme Judge. In future, the specificity of cases shall be needed to ensure that the law, especially civil law, does not become confusing, dis-coordinated, and disjointed by too many rulings on frivolous subjects. I would also recommend that Parliament act on this as a catalyst to a serious governmental review of the law to outline both civil and criminal legislation.

Various commonwealth citizens disagreed with the definition of "British grocery stores" with Newton von Uberquie supporting Nisa and James Frisch objecting to various chains that were chosen.

Claimant's definition of a "major British grocery store" includes Budgens. Budgens should not be considered "major", as our local Budgens became a Co-op over a decade ago and I have seen only one other Budgens since then. Additionally, I have never seen a Heron Foods and never even heard of a Fulton's.

Lycon, being the petitioner, responded that he copied the list in the Wikipedia page "List of supermarket chains in the United Kingdom".
