The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and remarkable for its conspicuous electricity pylons, rampant corporate plagiarism, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.288 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 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 33,174 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 1,172,757 zuchs, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise, soldiers are equipped with multi-million zuchs battlesuits, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, and the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources. 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 191,024th in the world and 3rd in Macfora Forever for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -68.99 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
