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 anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.678 billion 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.

Strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up, and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. 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 4th in the Pacific and 121st in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 1,114 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
