The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 26.79 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 435 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 16,269 Shiny Beads, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, and students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art. 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 155,288th in the world and 7,798th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -85.69 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
