The Technocracy of Partax is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed population of 6.667 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 2,118 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 317,693 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. 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 224,582nd in the world and 8,923rd in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.24 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
