The Taoist Imperial State of Baophenx Dynasty is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Tao-Qi IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The cynical, devout population of 4.619 billion Baophenx Dynastyians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avarga. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Baophenx Dynastyian economy, worth 814 trillion Baphmas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 176,418 Baphmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Small shoes often wash up on the beach, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs, and nine out of ten citizens of Baophenx Dynasty answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baophenx Dynasty's national animal is the Basilisk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Taoism.

Baophenx Dynasty is ranked 8,848th in the world and 2nd in The Hercules Corona Borealis Great Wall for Highest Average Incomes, with 176,418.19 Standard Monetary Units.
