The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 16.318 billion Zerophixians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Equality. The average income tax rate is 99%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Cars are banned from built-up areas, even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, and the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Zerophix's national animal is the Pink Elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Shiny Beads.

Zerophix is ranked 3,608th in Lazarus and 121,212th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -33 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
