In Thailand, its the year 2554. Pretty sure this correlates with Buddhist teachings... but not %100 sure. It is pretty interesting when you go there and certain places where you get receipts, the year is 2554 (or 2553 when i was there last year). Also, some monuments have been erected and the dates when they were opened are like 2522, 2344, etc...
Not sure if thats the kinda info you were after, but interesting nonetheless
