The Potato-Poet of The Salaxalans is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Svlad Cjelli with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.064 billion Salaxians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. 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 4,054 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 237,630 Dirks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Rime, and bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes. 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 123,492nd in the world and 154th in Spiritus for Most Average, scoring 34.77 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
