Interesting exercise in mental gymnastics... .

In base 1 there is no symbol for 0(zero) if one is to believe Wikipedia.
Thus there is no character after the character 0(zero) because that character does not exist in that system.
So counter to my incorrect and uninformed vote, the better answer is probably 'heresy'.
One learns the strangest things here... . Yet it does leave one open to asking what nothing is in a system which has no representation for it.

Perhaps if one is stuck in an unary system, zero would be thought of as a quality instead of as a quantity. I think I like that...

...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...
