The Hippy State of Zerophix is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, feral children, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 26.968 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 438 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 16,268 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 61,447th in the world and 3,280th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,269.38 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
