The Technocracy of Partax is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, vat-grown people, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed population of 6.679 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 2,109 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 315,829 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border. 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 46,849th in the world and 975th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 6.68 billion Capita.
