Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.909 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 29,416 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 1,135,375 zuchss, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,582,859 per year while the poor average 274,900, a ratio of 13.0 to 1.

The state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association, the Bright Angelian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, business leaders are mailing Johann der Becker forged birth certificates in a bid to win their rivals as serfs, and minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave. 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 17th in the world and 3rd in Macfora Forever for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 42,771.2 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
