The Republic of BrightFutures is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 30.1 billion BrightFuturesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BrightFutures City. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient BrightFuturesian economy, worth a remarkable 5,635 trillion Luminosities a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 187,227 Luminosities, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BrightFutures's national animal is the Sun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

BrightFutures is ranked 28,095th in the world and 836th in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 90.15 Insults Per Minute.
