The Technocracy of Partax is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 5.053 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 1,398 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 276,701 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The PBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, every workday begins with group therapy, bizarre-looking creatures called 'owldogs' dominate wildlife preserves, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. 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 206,851st in the world and 9,102nd in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.24 Crimes Per Hour.
