The Technocracy of Partax is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 2.391 billion Partaxians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Partaxian economy, worth 479 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 Tourism. Average income is an amazing 200,447 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Partaxians, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, and too many hyper-intelligent chefs can spoil the allegorical broth. 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 57,032nd in the world and 3,795th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.99 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
