How simple Z is?

PreZ is the closure of all of what is provable from the logical axioms of first order logic and the following axioms by the rules of inference of first order logic (Hilbert style).
Comprehension: if phi is a formula then a set {x C A phi} exists.
Infinity: Exist N. 0 in N & for all m. m in N > {m} in N.
/
where C is the known "subset" relation.
It is nice to know that PreZ interpets Z. And that MOST of mathematics can be formalized within it (through its interpretation of Z of course).
