The Serene Compassionate Utopia of Safj is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tree Person with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, daily referendums, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 32.101 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 12,205 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 mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 380,212 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dodoes have more rights than the average citizen, artists are pillars of society, Safj's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums. Crime is totally unknown. Safj's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Safj is ranked 170,196th in the world and 178th in Texas for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -4673.6 on the Hayek Index.
