The Just of Tzo is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Citizen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 33.812 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 inefficient Tzoan economy, worth a remarkable 9,283 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 274,566 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", and the 'three Rs' have become the 'four Rs' with the addition of Rightful Thought. 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 208,821st in the world and 2,132nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -115.65 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
