The Serene Compassionate Utopia of Safj is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tree Person with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.229 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 15,107 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 416,986 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Some Safjian athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", the Safjian Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, and workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning. Crime is totally unknown. Safj's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Safj is ranked 25th in the world and 1st in Texas for Most Developed, scoring 100.88 on the Human Development Index.
