The Technocracy of Partax is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its aversion to nipples, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 4.846 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 Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Partaxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,315 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 271,482 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?", foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Partaxian bee, and suspicious glow-in-the-dark wasps remain a source of terror and awe. 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 202,846th in the world and 9,753rd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.97 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
