The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 24.434 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 402 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 16,485 Shiny Beads, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments, in government offices a hidden killer takes the lives of ministers and civil servants, and gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up. 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 153,342nd in the world and 7,717th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -67 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
