The Republic of BrightFutures is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 27.753 billion BrightFuturesians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

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 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient BrightFuturesian economy, worth a remarkable 5,143 trillion Luminosities a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 185,335 Luminosities, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, every politician claims to be at least 1% Native BrightFuturesian, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. 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 5,604th in the world and 333rd in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.47 Years.
