The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 18.92 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, 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 301 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 15,919 Shiny Beadss, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, the government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, and Zerophix is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. 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.
