The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 28.597 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 528 trillion Shiny Beads a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 18,471 Shiny Beads, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Zerophix City, pausing for applause during a speech is seen as a form of censorship, and surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods. 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 205,858th in the world and 9,595th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -90.76 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
