The Military Dictatorship of Tzuland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General Tzu with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.022 billion Tzulandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Tzuland. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Tzulandian economy, worth an astonishing 18,762 trillion Golds 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 a breathtaking 1,102,266 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, hand-to-hand combat experience is udderly essential for all dairy ranchers, and policemen want to put the nation's homosexuals up against a wall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tzuland's national animal is the Golden Pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tzuism.

Tzuland is ranked 21st in the world and 1st in Yggdrasil for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 81,910.78 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
