The Technocracy of Partax is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The hard-nosed population of 6.672 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 income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Partaxian economy, worth a remarkable 2,107 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 315,844 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Colonials are offended to find a local animal has been re-named the 'Furry Four-Legged Marsupial Owl', citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, and crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens. 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 1,827th in the world and 89th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 15,316.02 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
