The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, deadly medical pandemics, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 35.423 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, with Industry, Spirituality, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. 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 44,791 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 1,264,465 zuchs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,200,372 per year while the poor average 202,705, a ratio of 25.7 to 1.

The armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, assault rifles sized for 7-year-olds are a frighteningly popular export, the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth, and a wide-ranging purge of leading officials and family members is being carried out by Johann der Becker. 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 215,395th in the world and 1st in Macfora Forever for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -63.01 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
