The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, triple-decker prams, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.356 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 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 31,379 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 1,147,078 zuchs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,689,400 per year while the poor average 270,124, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

Children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, vaccinations are mandatory, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. 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 179,381st in the world and 3rd in Macfora Forever for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2.09 Tourists Per Hour.
