Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Wanderlust Paradise of Safj is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Tree Person with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, state-planned economy, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.4 billion Safjians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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

The frighteningly efficient Safjian economy, worth a remarkable 9,741 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 Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 343,024 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, the government funds large training centres to turn Dodoes into functioning members of society, the state believes that nature-oriented summer camps will somehow solve youth crime, and tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 168,845th in the world and 152nd in Texas for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -80.78 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
