The Corporatocracy of Zalodia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Primary Shareholder Zarkso with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.348 billion Zalodians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zalosanti. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Zalodian economy, worth a remarkable 1,502 trillion Zarks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 236,621 Zarks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 688,259 per year while the poor average 64,354, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

Zalodia has become a gigantic dustbowl filled with tourists and mean desperados, the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty", tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, and political activists are routinely executed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Zalodia's national animal is the Raccoon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Profitism.

Zalodia is ranked 624th in the world and 2nd in New Western Empire for Fattest Citizens, with 72.53 Obesity Rate.
