The Democratic States of Baxterra is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 403 million Baxterrans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albanova. The average income tax rate is 66.9%.

The all-consuming Baxterran economy, worth 34.5 trillion noomoons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,729 noomoons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, the government funds large training centres to turn bearhawks into functioning members of society, victims of limb-mauling industrial accidents are told to keep working with their remaining hand, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime is totally unknown. Baxterra's national animal is the bearhawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Baxterra is ranked 167,879th in the world and 5,394th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.1 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
