The Democratic States of Baxterra is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 637 million Baxterrans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albanova. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Baxterran economy, worth 59.0 trillion noomoons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,593 noomoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baxterra's national animal is the bearhawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Baxterra is ranked 194,333rd in the world and 5,456th in the West Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.54 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
