The New Roman Empire of Bax-Landia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ulysses Caesar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.419 billion Romans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rome. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Roman economy, worth a remarkable 1,410 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. Average income is an amazing 260,362 Denarius Aureuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, Romans are wondering where have all the flowers gone, and midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bax-Landia's national animal is the Pegasus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roman Polytheism.

Bax-Landia is ranked 8,812th in the world and 327th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 422,772.33 Standard Monetary Units.
