Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.486 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 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 29,824 trillion zuchss 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 Automobile Manufacturing. 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 1,126,031 zuchss, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,161,963 per year while the poor average 214,749, a ratio of 19.4 to 1.

The people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Bright Angel after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, and skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines. 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 160,276th in the world and 3rd in Macfora Forever for Most Primitive, scoring -482.55 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
