The Serene Compassionate Utopia of Safj is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tree Person with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 30.41 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 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 11,320 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 372,268 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, and legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass. Crime is totally unknown. Safj's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Safj is ranked 45th in the world and 2nd in Texas for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 17,586.01 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
