The Crashed Spaceship of The Salaxians is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Svlad Cjelli with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 15.247 billion Salaxians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rime. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Salaxalansian economy, worth a remarkable 1,830 trillion Dirks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 120,036 Dirks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, small children pause apologies for their misdeeds to ask what fiscal insolvency actually is, and bicycle parking sheds have sprouted like mushrooms near rail stations after cars were banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Salaxians's national animal is the Electric Monk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Chronology.

The Salaxians is ranked 96,267th in the world and 1st in Asta Fan Club for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,056.27 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
