The Just of Tzo is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Citizen with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 35.879 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, 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 enormous but underdeveloped Tzoan economy, worth a remarkable 9,775 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 272,461 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and government employees from Tzo dominate international lumberjack competitions. 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 6,305th in the world and 108th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 15,348.35 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
