The Potato-Poet of The Salaxalans is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Svlad Cjelli with a fair hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, rampant corporate plagiarism, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.705 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. 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 3,938 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 235,742 Dirks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots. Crime is totally unknown. The Salaxalans's national animal is the Electric Monk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Chronology.

The Salaxalans is ranked 3,598th in the world and 15th in Spiritus for Most Devout, with 4,305.75 Prayers Per Hour.
