The Bloodthirsty Bodhisattva of Zaolat is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Saulot with an even hand, and remarkable for its feral children, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 19.713 billion Salubri 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enoch. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Salubri economy, worth a remarkable 1,539 trillion Valerans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,098 Valerans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, once-vitriolic celebrity chefs are now known for giving encouraging hugs to aspiring cooks, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and it's scientifically provable that Salubri guys don't know how to make a woman happy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, and its national religion is Golconda.

Zaolat is ranked 44,873rd in the world and 838th in Osiris for Most Influential, scoring 557 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
