The Republic of BrightFutures is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 28.685 billion BrightFuturesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. 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 5,364 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 187,027 Luminosities, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, employers are keenest on employees who lack family values, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. 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 8,348th in the world and 555th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 8,746.84 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
