The Military Dictatorship of Tzuland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by General Tzu with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.081 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 18,937 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 1,108,704 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Tzuland successfully hosted the Yggdrasil Olympics, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons. 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 183,955th in the world and 150th in Yggdrasil for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -351 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
