The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.706 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Zerophixian economy, worth 250 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 14,990 Shiny Beadss, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and a vast monorail network carries people all over the country. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zerophix is ranked 2,424th in Lazarus and 74,424th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.177 Stalins.
