The Serene Compassionate Utopia of Safj is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Tree Person with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 32.772 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 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 12,649 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 385,993 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury. Crime is totally unknown. Safj's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Safj is ranked 2,392nd in the world and 4th in Texas for Highest Drug Use, scoring 117 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
