The Pax Britanica was maintained primarily through universal concent though. "Let the British take care of the pirate problem, let the British take care of the American problem, let the British take care of the sub continent" This is clearly evident by the fact that it broke down as soon as anyone challenged it. The dutch let the english be in charge because, their ships got the safety without the hassel, same with the french and the germans.
(gross oversimplification of history)
The Romans maintained peace by dominance.
All other Pax are simply shadows of the roman dominance with the term applied because the time "sorta resembles" the PAX Romana
