The Military Dictatorship of Tzuland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General Tzu with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, state-planned economy, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.958 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 26,448 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 Woodchip Exports. 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 1,204,492 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit, cute fluffy little General Tzus are increasingly popular exotic pets, and good-looking doctors are obliged by law to give foot rubs to General Tzu. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Tzuism.

Tzuland is ranked 4th in the world and 1st in 10000 Islands for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 262,070.81 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
