The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, aversion to nipples, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 34.548 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, although Industry, Spirituality, and Healthcare are also considered important, 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 43,339 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 1,254,471 zuchs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,841,778 per year while the poor average 223,294, a ratio of 21.7 to 1.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, caroling is considered a public disturbance, Bright Angel is suspiciously populated compared to its neighbors, and Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Bright Angelian officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them. 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 216,933rd in the world and 3rd in Macfora Forever for Most Politically Free, scoring 12.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
