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 25.317 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 concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. 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.

Homes have been banned from having any more than one wheel, the government snoops on private internet connections, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, and all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Techno's national animal is the Elvis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is NakNakism, and its currency is the Franco.

Techno is ranked 2,596th in the Pacific and 90,380th in the world for Most Politically Free, scoring 19 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
