The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.821 billion Zerophixians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, 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.

Illegal hunting is rife after veganism was recently made compulsory, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and the government funds large training centres to turn Pink Elephants into functioning members of society. 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 3,292nd in Lazarus and 112,452nd in the world for Safest, scoring -2,642 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
