The Sadistic Republic of Bright Angel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Johann der Becker with an iron fist, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, strictly enforced bedtime, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 33.119 billion Bright Angelians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Spirituality, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flagstaff. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Bright Angelian economy, worth an astonishing 41,384 trillion zuchs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 1,249,564 zuchs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Amorous nobles always bring the same disappointing gift to weddings, weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, Bright Angel is suspiciously populated compared to its neighbors, and the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in Macfora Forever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Bright Angel's national animal is the red bearded woodchuck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Veni vidi vici.

Bright Angel is ranked 177,233rd in the world and 3rd in Macfora Forever for Most Pro-Market, scoring -73.33 on the Rand Index.
