The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, feral children, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.994 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, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. The income tax rate is 100%.
The large but stagnant Zerophixian economy, worth 274 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 15,274 Shiny Beadss, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, businesses are scrambling to adapt to the government's mandate that 'time and measurement no longer exist', all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, and anti-government web sites are springing up. 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.
