The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.435 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 36,425 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 1,196,821 zuchs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, it's usual for grandparents to stay in the family home with their descendants but younger children are often frightened of them, and kitchen patrol is dominated by ten-year-old runts. 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 39th in the world and 1st in Macfora Forever for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 78,041.04 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
