The Just of Tzo is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Citizen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, ban on automobiles, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 34.667 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 8,886 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 significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 256,343 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, chess hooliganism is on the rise after the banning of organised sports, and diplomats are always trying to convince other nations to adopt l33t speak. 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 230,899th in the world and 1,492nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -167.53 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
