The Natural Order of Itzoma is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Itzo with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 20.156 billion Itzomen enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Public Transport, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shamballah. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Itzoman economy, worth a remarkable 1,806 trillion biebers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 89,641 biebers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 469,983 per year while the poor average 9,157, a ratio of 51.3 to 1.

Global anti-terrorist organisations strongly suspect Itzoma of supplying extremist groups, the space program has been reduced to Itzo's nephew playing with a cardboard space shuttle, sick days are on the rise, and alcoholism is the newest import from Dàguó. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Itzoma's national animal is the burrrrrrrrrrr, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Itzanity.

Itzoma is ranked 229,621st in the world and 160th in Texas for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -3.16 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
