The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and notable for its conspicuous electricity pylons, anti-smoking policies, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 34.527 billion Bright Angelians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Spirituality, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flagstaff. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Bright Angelian economy, worth an astonishing 43,309 trillion zuchs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 1,254,365 zuchs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,841,369 per year while the poor average 223,275, a ratio of 21.7 to 1.

Deli patrons examine their roast beef for undetonated explosives, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, people are often woken up by rubbish music, and mechanics are often exhausted by their work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Bright Angel's national animal is the red bearded woodchuck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Veni vidi vici.

Bright Angel is ranked 240,898th in the world and 3rd in Macfora Forever for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.47 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
