The Just of Tzo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Citizen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.175 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — 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 9,913 trillion Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 274,033 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Tzoan weed picker are way up, dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, and the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast. 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 201,686th in the world and 860th in 10000 Islands for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
