Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Bibliophile's Republic of Safj is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Kaiser Wassner with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.23 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguin Point. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Safjian economy, worth a remarkable 8,271 trillion Ivoxes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 315,343 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, all citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society, and eminent domain has been abolished. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Safj's national animal is the Friendly Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Safj is ranked 99,890th in the world and 109th in Texas for Most Pro-Market, scoring 31.22 on the Rand Index.
