The Divine Potato Empire of The Salaxalans is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Svlad Cjelli with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.341 billion Salaxians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 3,567 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 232,574 Dirks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations, lending money has become a major liability, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. 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 3,241st in the world and 12th in Spiritus for Most Devout, with 4,449.08 Prayers Per Hour.
