The Just of Tzo is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Citizen with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 35.276 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, 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 underdeveloped Tzoan economy, worth a remarkable 9,502 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 major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 269,385 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, and a new "thought police" branch is being developed. 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 2nd in the world and 1st in 10000 Islands for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 9,748.28 Tourists Per Hour.
