The Democratic Republic of Techny is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.367 billion Technyians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Technyian economy, worth 113 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Trout Farming industry. Average income is 48,014 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, organ donation is compulsory, and populations of two-headed bisons have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Techny's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Techny is ranked 177,706th in the world and 3,369th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 55.4 billion Standard Monetary Units.
