The Bloodthirsty Bodhisattva of Zaolat is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Saulot with an even hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, vat-grown people, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The devout population of 20.592 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 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Salubri economy, worth a remarkable 1,607 trillion Valerans a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,086 Valerans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, stern tutting by international commentators has persuaded Zaolat to disarm, the national defense strategy is a little floppy, and copyright laws have been abolished. 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 26,505th in the world and 1,497th in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,903.29 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
