OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Nak Nakian Colony of Techno is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Allmighty Nak Nak with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.622 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 industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Uranium Mining.

Techno is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, and a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery. 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 1st in the Pacific and 11th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 51 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
