The Salaxalans

Population24.846 billion

LeaderSvlad Cjelli

AnimalElectric Monk

The Potato-Poet of The Salaxalans is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Svlad Cjelli with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.846 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, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, 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 6,289 trillion Dirks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 253,146 Dirks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The treehouse in Electric Monk Park is the tallest building in The Salaxalans, pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security, mechanics are often exhausted by their work, and kids looking for shark teeth have become ancient history. 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 40,765th in the world and 25th in Spiritus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 280,080 Standard Monetary Units.
