The Technocracy of Partax is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 4.807 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 1,300 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 270,569 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Partaxians any less frightened, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, school uniforms are compulsory, and forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies. 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 558th in the world and 32nd in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 167.87 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
