The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ban on automobiles, and lack of airports. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 23.181 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 384 trillion Shiny Beads a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 16,569 Shiny Beads, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parties that are too noisy are broken up to prevent disturbing wildlife, the question of 'what is Leader's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, and school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel. 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 157,171st in the world and 8,123rd in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.28 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
