The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.196 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 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 47,575 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 1,279,054 zuchs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,633,684 per year while the poor average 251,709, a ratio of 18.4 to 1.

Skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, shipping canals are a bit like unimaginative cheese shops -- filled with debris, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. 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 271,359th in the world and 3rd in Macfora Forever for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -2583.13 on the Hayek Index.
