The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.62 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 99%. 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.

Convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds. 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 2nd in Lazarus and 53rd in the world for Best Weather, with 1,957 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
