The Just of Tzo is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Citizen with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 37.906 billion Tzoans 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 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 gigantic but underdeveloped Tzoan economy, worth an astonishing 10,924 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 288,194 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life, and factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas. 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 228,950th in the world and 1,345th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.55 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
