The Principality of Safrinin is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.396 billion Safris are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Safranine. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.7%.

The powerhouse Safrininian economy, worth 201 trillion Rinins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,238 Rinins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 243,962 per year while the poor average 23,050, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, and students do more community service than homework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Safrinin's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Safrinin is ranked 123,064th in the world and 2,297th in the Rejected Realms for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -1 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
