The Queen's State of Tuzu is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 22.414 billion Tuzuans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 64.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Tuzuan economy, worth 422 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Retail, Cheese Exports, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 18,841 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the government is reigning in public spending, and gambling is outlawed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tuzu's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tuzu is ranked 137,673rd in the world and 7th in East Timor for Most Avoided, scoring 1.31 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
