The Technocracy of Partax is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed population of 4.866 billion Partaxians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Partaxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,320 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 271,419 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, the nation's war memorials are being torn down and replaced with peace gardens, Partaxians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, and there's a bright dawn ahead for Partax. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Partax's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Partax is ranked 635th in the world and 37th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 98.63 on the Human Development Index.
