The Serene Compassionate Utopia of Safj is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tree Person with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 30.04 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 11,130 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 370,509 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, and orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents. Crime is totally unknown. Safj's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Safj is ranked 9th in the world and 1st in Texas for Most Inclusive, scoring 728.69 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
