The Republic of Baxa is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 274 million Baxans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 28.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Baxan economy, worth 19.2 trillion BCoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 70,240 BCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, Mr Happy's Funland has just been named Baxa's new capital, and political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baxa's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Baxa is ranked 127,415th in the world and 1st in Altraania for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 221.32 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
