The Republic of BrightFutures is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 26.462 billion BrightFuturesians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

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 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient BrightFuturesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,917 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 185,817 Luminosities, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School uniforms are compulsory, nothing gets the party jumping like Leader specifying how high, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. 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 156,251st in the world and 7,901st in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 22.16 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
