The Just of Tzo is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Citizen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, parental licensing program, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.527 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, 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 gigantic but underdeveloped Tzoan economy, worth an astonishing 10,077 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 275,901 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, many marriages go virtually unconsummated, 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 202,817th in the world and 1,189th in 10000 Islands for Most Conservative, scoring 29.85 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
