The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 33.073 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Spirituality, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 an astonishing 41,280 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 1,248,161 zuchs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day, Johann der Becker will only ring up foreign leaders if they agree to reverse the charges, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, and barges of dissidents are being "reeducated through water therapy" in the South Red bearded woodchuck Sea. 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 17,512th in the world and 1st in Macfora Forever for Most Extreme, scoring 38.48 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
