The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its lack of airports, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.634 billion Zerophixians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, 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 267 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 15,167 Shiny Beadss, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population, and the government is flooded with compensation requests. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Zerophix's national animal is the Pink Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
