Where can I obtain the full DNS zone files for all TLDs?

Is there a way to get full zone files for all TLDs? I have managed to get my hands on a few (.com, .net, dotorg), but I'd really like to get some of the country-specific ones for having a play around with, but I have no idea if there is a general procedure to acquire these?

No, there is no general procedure because each ccTLD is sovereign and follow the laws of its country. Some allow DNS zone transfers (.AL, .UG, etc), some allow transfers for a fee, with a written contract (.FR, etc), some deny everything (.DE, as far as I know).
