OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 16.139 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, 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.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds. 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 472nd in Lazarus and 16,417th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
