The Holy Roman Empire of Bax-Landia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ulysses Caesar with an even hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, anti-smoking policies, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.696 billion Romans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rome. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Roman economy, worth a remarkable 1,678 trillion 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 250,710 Aureuses, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bax-Landia's national animal is the Werewolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Pantheon.

Bax-Landia is ranked 5,088th in the world and 165th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 443.69 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
