The Technocracy of Partax is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 6.236 billion Partaxians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

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 1,918 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 307,627 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country routinely whitewashes uncomfortable parts of its history, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web. 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 594th in the world and 25th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 27,907.7 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
