Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 22.484 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 373 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 16,600 Shiny Beads, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Zerophix will pay them to stop, and both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade. 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 169,875th in the world and 8,693rd in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -119.62 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
