The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, feral children, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 17.396 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 average income tax rate is 99.8%.
The large but stagnant Zerophixian economy, worth 262 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 15,106 Shiny Beadss, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, divorce lawyers are found begging on the streets, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. 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.
