The Serene Compassionate Utopia of Safj is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tree Person with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 31.514 billion Safjians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 11,840 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 375,715 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime is totally unknown. Safj's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Safj is ranked 64th in the world and 2nd in Texas for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 98.56 Workforce Participation Rate.
