The Just of Tzo is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Citizen with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, lack of airports, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 33.801 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, liberal, 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 inefficient Tzoan economy, worth a remarkable 9,280 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 274,553 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and some paycheques only arrive every 12 to 24 weeks. 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 208,804th in the world and 2,159th in 10000 Islands for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -59.01 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
