The Republic of Safas is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Storm with an even hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, daily referendums, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-working population of 6.11 billion Saffers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sletstad. The average income tax rate is 45.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Safasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,009 trillion Rand a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 165,166 Rand, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, a surprising number of police officers have been arrested for Tiger sacrifices, and orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Safas's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Safas is ranked 95,851st in the world and 3,534th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 49.56 on the Rand Index.
