The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.767 billion Bright Angelians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flagstaff. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, and citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Bright Angel's national animal is the red bearded woodchuck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Veni vidi vici, and its currency is the zuchs.

Bright Angel is ranked 1st in Macfora Forever and 875th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 414 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
