The Watchful Eyes of Bridgett is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Bridgett Zeroe with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.66 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, pro-business, 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 are ignored. 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 4,043 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 Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 319,413 rubles, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Sports club owners are having a moneyball, 9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer, parents must decide between buying food and taking their children to the park, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. 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 175,937th in the world and 135th in Karma for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 347.07 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
