The Corporatocracy of Zalodia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Primary Shareholder Zarkso with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, flagrant waste-dumping, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.861 billion Zalodians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business 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 1,875 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 238,563 Zarks, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The debts of the father fall upon the son, adult unemployment is rising as available jobs are filled by young children, teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, and amusement park rides frequently collapse due to lack of maintenance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 6,471st in the world and 3rd in New Western Empire for Most Primitive, scoring 113.84 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
