The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, ubiquitous missile silos, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 34.521 billion Bright Angelians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Spirituality, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flagstaff. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Bright Angelian economy, worth an astonishing 43,287 trillion zuchs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 1,253,936 zuchs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,867,796 per year while the poor average 221,119, a ratio of 22.0 to 1.

Bright Angelian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, mandatory spouse selection pairs elderly apparatchiki with stunningly beautiful supermodels, deli patrons examine their roast beef for undetonated explosives, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Bright Angel's national animal is the red bearded woodchuck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Veni vidi vici.

Bright Angel is ranked 1,272nd in the world and 1st in Macfora Forever for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 22,749.02 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
