The Technocracy of Partax is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its vat-grown people, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 5.334 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 income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Partaxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,514 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 284,015 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding 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 764th in the world and 42nd in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 65.2 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
