The Just of Tzo is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Citizen with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 34.288 billion Tzoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serenity. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Tzoan economy, worth a remarkable 9,035 trillion Units a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 263,506 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, hungry families offer spare change to their social workers, Tzo recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tzo's national animal is the Albatros, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tzo is ranked 11th in the world and 4th in 10000 Islands for Most Influential, scoring 856,839 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
