The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 15.016 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, 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 98%. 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.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, all recreational drugs are legal, the government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 3,804th in Lazarus and 122,668th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -32 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
