The Republic of BrightFutures is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 25.916 billion BrightFuturesians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BrightFutures City. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient BrightFuturesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,821 trillion Luminosities a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 186,057 Luminosities, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, BrightFutures City has become the number one destination for urban exploration in The North Pacific, there is a law against "filthy foreign food", and the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award. 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 5,624th in the world and 314th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 157.08 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
