The Icy Blue Rage of Bridgett is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Bridgett Zeroe with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ritual sacrifices, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.45 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, prioritizes Industry, with Defense 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 Velarus. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Bridgett economy, worth a remarkable 1,977 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, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 265,489 rubles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,099,441 per year while the poor average 8,189, a ratio of 256 to 1.

If you go into the woods today you're sure of a big surprise, the price of freedom is about half a million rubles, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and the nation's new flagship trading company deals exclusively in things no one wants. 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 Egoism.

Bridgett is ranked 240,936th in the world and 21st in Fae for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring -25.1 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
