Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.815 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, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The large but stagnant Zerophixian economy, worth 268 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 15,094 Shiny Beadss, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation leads The North Pacific in per capita stalking, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, the government is giving peace a chance, and the police have been reduced to using duct tape instead of handcuffs following further cutbacks. 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.

Zerophix is ranked 5,345th in The North Pacific and 118,931st in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring -345 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
