The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 16.486 billion Zerophixians 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, 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 98%. 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.

The poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, the Zerophix Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, and biology and religious education classes have recently been merged. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 3,597th in Lazarus and 117,674th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -62 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
