The Holy Empire of Zalasin is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lady Butterfly with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 2.378 billion Zalasinians 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.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhopalocera. The average income tax rate is 45.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Zalasinian economy, worth 102 trillion zalazes a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,006 zalazes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', tourists are flocking to the newly-built MeteorLand family resort, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, and schoolchildren are arrested for possessing sidewalk chalk without a permit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zalasin's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zalasin is ranked 81,506th in the world and 4,259th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,453.15 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
