The Serene Compassionate Utopia of Safj is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tree Person with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 35.968 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 14,960 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 major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 415,930 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges, male politicians lose their jobs for staring too long at their female counterparts, the endangered saltwater humpback Dodo is only seen in captivity programs, and foreign musicians that Tree Person dislikes are turned away at the border. Crime is totally unknown. Safj's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Safj is ranked 39,452nd in the world and 17th in Texas for Most Politically Free, scoring 78 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
