The Republic of BrightFutures is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 24.464 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, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BrightFutures City. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient BrightFuturesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,463 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 182,433 Luminosities, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail, and birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire. 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 55,017th in the world and 3,015th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,888.45 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
