The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.919 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, 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.

The government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public, birth rates have hit an all-time low, convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes, and organ donation rates have hit a new low. 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 3,355th in Lazarus and 113,906th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with -773 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
