The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, prohibition of alcohol, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 41.073 billion Bright Angelians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Spirituality, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. 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 a staggering 54,022 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 1,315,285 zuchs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Bright Angel at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, military spending recently hit a new high, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, and women who leak pus from infected wounds are told to suck it up. 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 184,185th in the world and 1st in Macfora Forever for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 47.92 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
