OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of Safj is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kaiser Wassner with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 22.602 billion Safjians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of South Bend. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Safjian economy, worth 461 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 extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 20,428 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, eminent domain has been abolished, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Kaiser Wassner's bedroom, and museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Safj's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Safj is ranked 2,617th in Lazarus and 80,182nd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.137 Stalins.
