The Serene Compassionate Utopia of Safj is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tree Person with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, state-planned economy, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 29.329 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 10,614 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 Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 361,900 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, homophobia is off the menu, the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, and the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon. Crime is totally unknown. Safj's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Safj is ranked 121st in the world and 1st in Texas for Highest Poor Incomes, with 311,486.68 Standard Monetary Units.
