The Serene Compassionate Utopia of Safj is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tree Person with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.246 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 15,169 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 418,523 Ivoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals. Crime is totally unknown. Safj's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Safj is ranked 244,728th in the world and 189th in Texas for Most Primitive, scoring -975.34 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
