The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.691 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, socially-minded, 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 48,762 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 1,293,738 zuchs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent, prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Bright Angelian Liberator", and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. 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 6,031st in the world and 1st in Macfora Forever for Most Influential, scoring 11,870 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
