The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.061 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 99.6%.
The large but stagnant Zerophixian economy, worth 257 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 15,119 Shiny Beadss, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A government program is underway to revitalize Zerophix's beaches, the tenet of free speech is held dear, divorce lawyers are found begging on the streets, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zerophix's national animal is the Pink Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
