The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 23.747 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 392 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 16,517 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 12,051st in the world and 552nd in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 5,107.84 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
