I'd have thought in base one 0+0+0+0 however many times you like still = 0, (not 0000).
unless you're only using 0 as a symbol like if you could in tally you use the symbols
1 = 1
2 = 1 1
3 = 1 1 1
4 = 1 1 1 1
5 = 1111
(there's no strike through, but you get what I mean)
of course 1+1=11 in Roman numerals as well.
as for using base 1 sensibly...
I doubt that you can.
even counting in tallied numbers is just a base 5 system really. (not base 1), I was just trying to describe symbols
