OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 16.122 billion Zerophixians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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.

Politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. 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 140th in Lazarus and 3,575th in the world for Largest Populations, with 16,122 Capita (millions).
