The People's Republic of A Bright Future is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sasha Jankovic with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The quiet, industrious population of 2.327 billion Bright Futureans 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White City. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Bright Futurean economy, worth 196 trillion Hopes 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 84,326 Hopes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', CSI Forest is this year's hit new crime show, and ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Bright Future's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Historical Materialism.

A Bright Future is ranked 35,372nd in the world and 1,583rd in the Rejected Realms for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 725.82 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
