The Technocracy of Partax is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.364 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 Defense. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Partaxian economy, worth 469 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 Tourism. Average income is an impressive 198,504 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, Leader has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, builders across Partax are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and the law says that all Partaxians are created equal — no matter how they were created. 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 35,625th in the world and 2,130th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.91 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
