The Nak Nakian Colony of Techno is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Allmighty Nak Nak with an iron fist, and renowned for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.468 billion Technoans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of XTC City. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

The nation is loathed abroad for dumping all of its waste in international waters, streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Techno's national animal is the Elvis, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is NakNakism, and its currency is the Franco.

Techno is ranked 3,500th in the Pacific and 111,620th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -265 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
