The Crashed Spaceship of Salaxians is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Svlad Cjelli with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, triple-decker prams, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 12.74 billion Salaxians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rime. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Salaxalansian economy, worth a remarkable 2,461 trillion Dirks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 193,247 Dirks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 934,571 per year while the poor average 23,181, a ratio of 40.3 to 1.

Toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', and beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Salaxians's national animal is the Electric Monk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Chronology.

Salaxians is ranked 26,985th in the world and 68th in Spiritus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 189.08 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
