The Republic of BrightFutures is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 29.884 billion BrightFuturesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BrightFutures City. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient BrightFuturesian economy, worth a remarkable 5,641 trillion Luminosities a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 188,791 Luminosities, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, the parliament building has installed a revolving door, and heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BrightFutures's national animal is the Sun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BrightFutures is ranked 201,759th in the world and 8,902nd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.97 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
