The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.743 billion Zerophixians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and workers have seized control of the economy. 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 1,751st in Lazarus and 60,638th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.256 Stalins.
