The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, ritual sacrifices, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.733 billion Bright Angelians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

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 31,605 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 1,139,617 zuchs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,432,581 per year while the poor average 200,330, a ratio of 22.1 to 1.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, trespassers entering Johann der Becker's office are immediately vaporized, and the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb. 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 1,476th in the world and 1st in Macfora Forever for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 529.29 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
