The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 14.97 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever 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.

New funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, the government is giving peace a chance, and the nation leads Lazarus in per capita stalking. 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 3,843rd in Lazarus and 123,532nd in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring -685 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
