The Just of Tzo is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Citizen with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 35.538 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 9,790 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 major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 275,491 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, and the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects. 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 6,136th in the world and 92nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 15,130.29 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
