The Serene Compassionate Utopia of Safj is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Tree Person with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.884 billion Safjians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Garfield. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Safjian economy, worth an astonishing 15,609 trillion Ivoxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 423,216 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination. Crime is totally unknown. Safj's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Safj is ranked 6,743rd in the world and 21st in Texas for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 480,972 Standard Monetary Units.
