The Serene Compassionate Utopia of Safj is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tree Person with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 34.571 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 13,958 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 403,759 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, Safj is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, and leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks. Crime is totally unknown. Safj's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Safj is ranked 208,381st in the world and 200th in Texas for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -86.84 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
