The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 20.316 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 income tax rate is 100%.
The large but stagnant Zerophixian economy, worth 333 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 16,427 Shiny Beadss, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and re-education centers are being added to most prisons. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
