The Potato-Poet of The Salaxalans is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Svlad Cjelli with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, vat-grown people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.769 billion Salaxians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rime. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Salaxalansian economy, worth a remarkable 4,648 trillion Dirks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 247,692 Dirks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government defends a woman's right to choose, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, and it turns out you can teach cats new tricks. Crime is totally unknown. The Salaxalans's national animal is the Electric Monk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chronology.

The Salaxalans is ranked 228,792nd in the world and 245th in Spiritus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.17 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
