The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.57 billion Zerophixians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, 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.

Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, and the government is flooded with compensation requests. 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 2nd in Lazarus and 53rd in the world for Best Weather, with 1,930 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
