ZI is an acronym from the game Cybernations meaning "Zero Infrastructure", in reference to a harsh military defeat in which the defeated nation's infrastructure is completely destroyed. Since national economies in the cyberverse rely on infrastructure, being "ZIed" is the Cyber Nations equivalent of being "knocked into the stone age".
The original ZI was issued to Duke of the alliance Magna by Pres. Alexander Uatu of the Grey Council. This set a president for regime leaders to exit the world stage and begin life anew or be forced to exist as a new nation indefinitely.
