The New Roman Empire of Bax-Landia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Ulysses Caesar with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, anti-smoking policies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.189 billion Romans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, 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 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Roman economy, worth a remarkable 1,009 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 240,977 Denarius Aureuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

A referendum must be held in order for any new law to be passed, environmentalists have found an unusual ally in soldiers of fortune, rundown towns are frequently sold to billionaires for their pet projects, and it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bax-Landia's national animal is the Pegasus, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Roman Polytheism.

Bax-Landia is ranked 170,320th in the world and 8,930th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 7.12 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
