The Vigilant of Zaolat is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Saulot with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 6.978 billion Salubris have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with the Environment, although Education and Social Welfare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enoch. The average income tax rate is 39%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, condemned prisoners spend hours a day sitting in lotus position looking perplexed, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zaolat's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Valeran, and its currency is the Stygian coin.
