The New Roman Empire of Bax-Landia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ulysses Caesar with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, triple-decker prams, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.51 billion Romans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rome. The average income tax rate is 89.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Roman economy, worth a remarkable 1,112 trillion Denarius Aureuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 246,594 Denarius Aureuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, the New Roman Thesaurus lists "love" and "oppress" as synonyms, and fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bax-Landia's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Polytheism.

Bax-Landia is ranked 33,079th in the world and 1,497th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,604.77 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
