The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its hatred of cheese, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 19.796 billion Zerophixians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked 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 326 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 16,507 Shiny Beadss, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, crime has increased substantially since the police concentrated all their efforts on arresting the rich for loitering in their own homes, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, and rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements. 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.
