The Serene Compassionate Utopia of Safj is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jay with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 40.159 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, outspoken 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 17,713 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 441,088 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, TV coverage of music festivals consists mostly of backstage interviews, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. Crime is totally unknown. Safj's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Safj is ranked 304,674th in the world and 1st in A Slice of Surreality for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 12.76 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
