The Watchful Eyes of Bridgett is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Bridgett Zeroe with a fair hand, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.622 billion Bridgett live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woven Depths. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Bridgett economy, worth a remarkable 3,176 trillion rubles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 299,017 rubles, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

The hit new medical TV show "Home" prominently features the brand of painkiller the lead doctor is addicted to, government officials are phoning up good-looking celebrities to say they want to breed with them, corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks, and mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bridgett's national animal is the angel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Necromancy.

Bridgett is ranked 158th in the world and 1st in Karma for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 61,640.38 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
