The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its lack of airports, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.589 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.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.
The large but stagnant Zerophixian economy, worth 329 trillion Shiny Beadss a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 16,814 Shiny Beadss, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Graffiti graces every city's streets, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zerophix's national animal is the Pink Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
