The Technocracy of Partax is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed population of 5.329 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 1,512 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 283,833 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, and beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings. 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 214,929th in the world and 9,703rd in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -10.95 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
