The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, frequent executions, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 33.09 billion Bright Angelians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Spirituality, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. 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 41,311 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 1,248,453 zuchs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Nations across the world are quick to praise Johann der Becker's good looks and intellectual prowess, Johann der Becker's latest speech included a bizarre reference to MaxWow incontinence pads being 50% more absorbent than the next leading brand, state officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Johann der Becker's portrait, and children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines. 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 208,829th in the world and 3rd in Macfora Forever for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.5 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
