That sounds more like a zomper than a zompist, tbh

An adherent of zompism. Zoological Ontontological Metarealist Phenominalism, to expand the acronym. The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy has a better explanation of this ideological viewpoint than I could provide, or Salmoneus could probably provide an entertaining ten paragraph summary. I am agnostic vis a vis the merits of zompism versus maoism versus trotskyism versus the views of Walter Bagehot.

What would the verb "to zomp" mean, though? Never seen it before.

Let's check what Urban Dictionary says...

It's also the Dutch word for swamp.

Zompist = one who lives outside the dikes?

Yeah, that's pretty much it. Though just to be fair, the word was invented by a friend of mine.
