The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its absence of drug laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 24.072 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 398 trillion Shiny Beads a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 16,539 Shiny Beads, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense. 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 667th in the world and 41st in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 381.3 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
