The Republic of Safas is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Storm with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 6.582 billion Saffers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 49.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Safasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,118 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 169,891 Rand, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

It is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Rand each year, much of Safas's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and a third of Saffers are e-certified CEOs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 167,046th in the world and 6,813th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -4.47 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
